Asparagus Roll-up Appetizer - Perfect for Any Kind of Party!

When I was a little girl, I remember my Mom making this Asparagus roll-up appetizer for bridge parties she would host or go to. I remember them, because I would sneak into the kitchen snitch them off the platter she was putting them on.

It was the only way I would eat the funny little green tips when I was a little kid, which is why she probably didn't mind me sneaking them. Actually, in remembering that and getting the recipe from her, she told me that she made extras just so I'd eat them!

With Labor Day just around the corner, why not make these ahead of time, freeze, and then pull them out to bake right before you need them. Nothing could be easier.

This simple recipe never seems to go out of style. It gets eaten up in an instant and it's a healthy way to snack. What's not to love about it?

What you'll need:
- 20 thin slices of white bread
- 3 oz. Bleu Cheese
- 1 egg
- 20 asparagus spears (fresh or frozen and cooked crisp)
- 1/1 lb. butter (melted or less to cover bread)

First, trim the crust from the bread slices. Flatten each slice with a rolling pin. Then, blend the egg and cheese either by hand or in a food processor and spread evenly on each bread slice.

Next, roll 1 spear in each slice of bread. Dip each roll in melted butter. Place on a cookie sheet and freeze. Slice each roll into 4 pieces (thaw it slightly to make slicing easier. )

Bake at 400 degrees F for 15 minutes.

You can also make a variation by using whole wheat bread instead of white bread for a hearty flavor. Or try using pumpernickel bread or rye of some kind. The different breads give different flavors. White bread is the easiest to use, but the other breads add some interesting flavors that are hard to beat.
