Here is a perfect do-ahead appetizer for easy entertaining. You can keep these on hand in your freezer for up to 1 month. Then, without thawing, heat the frozen roll-ups in a preheated 350° F oven for about 5 minutes, until warm and crisp.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Trim the asparagus to be the length of the bread slices. Put the asparagus in a microwave-proof dish and add about 1 tablespoon water. Cover tightly and microwave on HIGH for about 4 minutes. Drain well.
  2. Stir together the cream cheese, blue cheese, and egg white in a small bowl.
  3. Trim the crusts off the bread and use a rolling pin to flatten the slices. Spread each with about 2 teaspoons of the cheese mixture. Place an asparagus spear atop the cheese at the edge of a bread slice and roll to enclose the asparagus.
  4. Brush the rolls on all sides with melted butter. Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Place in the freezer for about 15 minutes, or until the bread is almost frozen.
  5. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  6. Slice each roll into thirds and bake for about 10 minutes, or until the rolls are light brown and crisp. Serve warm.
