prep: 25 mins cook: 20 mins total: 45 mins Servings: 12 Yield: 12 rolls

Ingredients:

2 tablespoons finely chopped chives

24 spears fresh asparagus, trimmed

6 slices bacon

12 slices white bread, crusts removed

2 tablespoons butter, melted

1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened

3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese, divided

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

Grease a baking sheet.

Place bacon in a large, deep skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate.

When bacon is cool, crumble and set aside in a bowl.

Place asparagus spears into a large skillet and pour in about 1 inch of water. Place over medium heat, cover the skillet, and simmer asparagus until bright green and slightly tender, about 5 minutes. Remove asparagus and set aside.

Place cream cheese and chives into the bowl with bacon and stir to evenly combine.

Roll each bread slice with a rolling pin on a work surface until the slices are thin and flat.

Spread cream cheese mixture evenly over each slice of bread.

Center 2 asparagus spears on a bread slice, and roll the slice around the asparagus into a tidy and compact cylinder. Place seam side down onto the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining ingredients.

Brush each roll with melted butter and sprinkle each with about 1 1/2 teaspoon Parmesan cheese.

Bake in the preheated oven until lightly golden brown and hot, 10 to 12 minutes.
