Very good. Needs a little more zip, but I think that is just a personal preference. Will make these again as hubby prefers them over plain asparagus. Made for Potluck Tag Game.
This was enjoyed by my family. I wasn't sure what temperature to bake these but I used 400 degrees and they turned out perfectly. I only used 2 stalks of asparagus in my crescent rolls (1 pound was way too much). I used cheddar cheese and real bacon bits. Great taste. I also wasn't sure about instruction 8 (the slicing part) so I just left them whole. Made for Photo Tag.
