Served for brunch on Mother's Day and they were a hit. I had no trouble at all using two spears of asparagus in each one. Made some with bacon and some without. Put a bacon bit on top of the ones with bacon inside to let guests know which ones had bacon. Delicious!
This was very good. I got a little fancy and used both white and green asparagus. The ones I picked were on the thin side, so I was able to place one of each color into the roll. It was so pretty and quite simple to make. My only problem was that some of the stems held on to water and made the rolls a little soggy. I think this was all user error though and not something against the directions of this recipe. I will make these again soon, and I will be holding the spears in some paper towel before rolling them up. Made and Reviewed for 123 Hit Wonders tag - Thanks! :)
This didn't turn out so good. I went exactly by the recipe, and found that the amount of filling was too much to fit into the roll. So the finished product wasn't pretty at all, more of a gooey mess. Also, asparagus is hard to bite through (stringy) so at my first bite I pulled the entire stalk out of the roll by accident, as did my son. My husband cut his into bites with a knife. The flavor was pretty good, but I won't make again.
