Asparagus Roll-Ups

  • Yield: 28 pieces


14-- thin slices white bread, crusts trimmed
8slices bacon, cooked crisp, drained and crumbled
8ounces cream cheese, room temperature
-- Finely grated zest of 1 lemon
28-- asparagus spears, cooked tender-crisp
-- Melted unsalted butter


  1. Flatten the bread slices with a rolling pin.  Combine the bacon, cream cheese, and lemon zest.  Spread an even layer of the cream cheese mixture on each flattened bread slice.
  2. Place 2 asparagus spears, with the tips facing in opposite directions, on one edge of each bread slice.  Roll up each slice like a jellyroll.  Cut each roll in half and place seam side down on a lightly greased cookie sheet.
  3. Preheat broiler.  Brush the tops and sides of the roll-ups with melted butter.  Broil 6 inches from the heat until lightly browned and tosted.  Serve immediately.
