6 asparagus spears, blanched in boiling water for 3 minutes
6 slices soft white bread
6 Teaspoons (tsp) softened butter ( 1 tsp. per slice of bread)
1 Tablespoon (Tbsp) softened butter
6 slices ham, thinly sliced, cut in half
6 slices Swiss cheese, cut in half
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
In a medium skillet, add enough water to cover the asparagus. Blanch asparagus for 2-3 minutes in boiling water, drain, cool, and set aside.
Remove crust from bread with a sharp serrated knife and roll out until very flat and thin.
Spread each slice of bread with 1 teaspoon (tsp) butter and 1 teaspoon (tsp) of Cherchies® Champagne Mustard.
Cut each slice in half. Place a thin slice of ham on six slices of bread and six slices of Swiss cheese for the other six slices of bread.
**Note, the original recipe called for this method. I personally prefer to add both the ham and cheese. (Unless, your guests are vegetarians or have a dairy intolerance, then consider doing it this way).
Cut the cooled asparagus in half. Top the ham or cheese slices with one half of each asparagus.
Roll up and brush with melted butter. Place seam side down on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
Bake at 425 degrees for 10-15 minutes, or until golden brown.
Can either serve whole or cut roll-ups in half to serve a crowd.
