So Good Asparagus Appetizers
|Sandwich bread slices||20 , crusts removed (Thin Slices)|
|Blue cheese||4 Ounce (At Room Temperature)|
|Cream cheese||8 Ounce (1 Package, At Room Temperature)|
|Egg||1 , beaten|
|Fresh asparagus spears||20 , cleaned and tuff end cut off|
Trim crusts from bread and flatten slightly with a rolling pin.
In a bowl, stir blue and cream cheeses together with the egg until well blended and creamy.
Spread a thin layer of cheese mixture over each slice of bread.
Roll one asparagus spear inside each and fasten with a toothpick.
Melt butter in a small saucepan.
Roll each asparagus wrap in butter to coat.
Place on a baking sheet and freeze for one hour, or until butter hardens and wraps are somewhat firm.
Remove pan from freezer, discard toothpicks, and cut each wrap in half crosswise.
Store in a resealable plastic bag in the freezer until ready to use.
To serve, preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Arrange frozen asparagus wraps on an ungreased baking sheet.
Bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes or until lightly browned.
Check occasionally, and turn if necessary, for even browning and to prevent burning.
