Cheesy Ham & Asparagus Rolls

By : missbutterfli

8 spears of asparagus, tough ends cut off
8 slices of blackforest ham or prosciutto (about 4 oz)
8 sticks of cheddar cheese (about 2 oz, cut into 8 sticks)

To begin, steam asparagus about 2.5 minutes in microwave or other steamer, until tender crisp.

Take one slice of ham, place 1 asparagus spear and one stick of cheese on top. Roll up tightly and secure with a toothpick. Repeat for remaining seven.

Place in a spoke fashion with heads of spears facing out on a microwavable place. Microwave on high for about 25 seconds until rolls are warm to the touch. Serve!

This is delicious and serves 2 as a snack or appetizer. Once I had all eight for breakfast for something different. Is also great dipped in spicy mustard or hot sauce! I'm not sure of carb count, but I have also served as a great (sit down) appetizer topped with Hollendaise sauce!
