Dijon, Ham, and Asparagus Roll-Ups Recipe

Source: The Daily Meal – www.thedailymeal.com – Posted by Megan Watson, Special Contributor

By far, this is one of my favorite recipes I have ever come across. My mom taught me this one years ago when she first served it to our family for a holiday brunch. Ever since then, these asparagus roll-ups have been on my “top-picks” list. Not only do these taste wonderful… they are so easy to make and will only take you 15 minutes tops from prep to finish.

I also like the variety of ways these roll-ups can be served. My favorites are: Valentine’s Day appetizers, Easter or Christmas Day brunch, snowy winter days with a side of soup, or even at a summer party with crisp, cool greens as a side salad. It also pairs well with a chilled glass of water or a glass of red wine.

Did I also mention that these can be made from stuff right out of your fridge? No fancy ingredients, just your everyday stuff! How awesome is that!? But, don’t let that fool you… these come out trés gourmet. So, no one has to know how easy they were to make.

INGREDIENTS

  • 12-16 stalks green asparagus
  • One 8-ounce package crescent rolls
  • Dijon mustard
  • 10 slices lean ham*

DIRECTIONS

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Break off the woody parts of the stem so that only about the top 3-3 ½ inches of the stalk remain. Place the asparagus in a microwavable bowl with just enough water to cover. Then, place a towel over the top of the bowl. Microwave on 50 percent power for 2 minutes or until tender.

Spread out the crescent roll dough evenly on a large baking sheet. Coat the dough with an even layer of Dijon mustard. Wrap 1-2 asparagus stalks in 1-2 slices of ham. Then, place at the wide end of the crescent dough and roll up in the dough. Repeat for each crescent roll.

Bake until slightly golden brown, about 10-12 minutes. Remove from the oven, let cool slightly, and serve warm.
