Fantastic results. Quite a bit of labor intensive work to create. Everybody enjoyed this & I think it would be a good buffet/appetizer dish if you have the time to attend to it. I cut the ham slices in half to make more slices because they were large & would have wrapped around the asparagus several times plus I needed many slices for all the asparagus. I used 2 bundles of asparagus which yielded 26 spears & used 1lb sliced ham. I kept the grill on low to avoid burning the ham before the asparagus cooked. Made for Aussie Swap 6/12.
