Asparagus Roll Ups

30 May

Introduction:

Looking for a new hip appetizer to bring to your next social gathering? Then we’ve got just the thing for you! These asparagus roll ups will be the talk of the town.

BUT WAIT,THERE’S MORE!

They’re incredibly easy to make too!

So what are you waiting for? Go and give these a try!

Ingredients:

  • 1 package of crescent rolls
  • 1 bunch of fresh asparagus
  • ground sea salt
  • fresh ground pepper
  • grated parmesan cheese

*Serves four people as an appetizer or side.

 Instructions:

1.) Preheat oven according to directions on crescent roll package. While oven is warming, wash asparagus under cold water and pat dry. Next, cut roughly one inch off of the bottom of each stalk to remove the tough not so yummy part.

2.) Open crescent roll package and roll out contents so that there is one flat layer of dough; this should make a rectangular shape. Cut dough into thin strips (roughly ½ inch wide) along the short side of the rectangle. Pinch together the perforations so that each strip is one continuous piece of dough.

3.) Wrap dough around the stalk of the asparagus so that it starts at the base and ends near the top.

4.) Mix together some fresh ground pepper, sea salt and grated parmesan cheese on a flat plate. Gently roll your asparagus roll ups in the seasoning mixture so that the seasoning generously sticks to the dough.

5.) Line roll ups on a baking sheet and bake according to directions on crescent roll package or until dough is golden brown.

6.) Let cool and serve!
