Some parties lend themselves to finger food and these Asparagus Roll Ups are just perfect for those parties. You can even make them ahead of time, freeze them and cook from frozen in around 15 minutes just as they are to be eaten.
They are really really easy to make and seem to impress people in spite of this. Removing the bacon does not detract from the enjoyment of these rolls if you have vegetarians to cater for.
You can use asparagus appetizer recipes like this as finger food at
garden parties, at christmas, family gatherings, you name it.... I am pretty sure they would go down well at childrens parties too as they are very colourful.
This dish as with most dishes will be much better if you can use fresh herbs, either straight out of the garden or off the window sill.
