These roll-ups are simply delicious! they make a great finger food for parties and gatherings and are quite simple to prepare, if you are not a lover of blue cheese you may omit, you may also add in some finely crumbled bacon to the cream cheese mixture :)

- 16 slices whole wheat sandwich bread, crusts removed
- 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
- 2 -3 tablespoons crumbled blue cheese

- Cut roll-ups in half.

These were very very good, though I would not use the canned asparagus again as mine was mushy and hard to work with...I will use either blanched or frozen next time, but the taste and presentation was great!
This is really good! The only change I made was to double the garlic. Thanks for posting! We will be having it again for sure.
Another recipe that I was going to post - but Kitteen beat me to it. These are to die for!!!! Even people that are not huge fans of asparagus love these. I cut them per the recipe if serving as an appetizer -- but I've also served them with soup and leave them whole. These work well with whole wheat bread as well as white bread.
