Cream Cheese & Parmesan Asparagus Cigars Recipe

cream cheese and parmesan aspargus cigars

Asparagus season is coming! I am jealous of those of you with huge asparagus patches who get to eat as much of this delectable treat as you like. I hope my patch (in its third year) produces enough for use to eat, finally, because I don’t think there’s much better than asparagus, fresh cut from the garden.

I love simply steaming asparagus and serving with lemon and Parmesan cheese, but sometimes it’s fun to try something new and dress up a recipe a tad! I found this recipe while browsing through a furniture store of all places! I was immediately drawn to the gorgeous picture {by contrast, my own picture is quite sad.} :( Regardless, though, this asparagus recipe is really tasty!

This asparagus recipe would be a great addition to a formal meal!

    These are so pretty!!! I love asparagus and tried to make something similar once using crescent rolls, but they were gross… I guess I don’t like crescent rolls! :P I will have to try the puff pastry next time. Yummy! They look like unicorn horns!

    Oh I know! I bought my first asparagus a couple of weeks ago and was SO excited. I love these rolled spears!!! With as much asparagus that we eat this time of year, I too, like to mix things up. Thanks for sharing such a great treat!

    That’s a new one…I think they’re pretty! I think I’d call them unicorn horns like Rachel suggested. :) I’ve just posted this week’s Homemaking Linkup and would love to have you join, if you’d like.

    Ah! I want to try these! I love asparagus! Quick question though, you list using cream cheese twice, was one of them supposed to be parmesan cheese?

    What happened to the actual recipe here. I know I seen it before but now that I am ready to make these don’t see anything other then the picture and the intro. What am I missing here?

      I have no idea!! I’m panicking a bit because every recipe I wrote using this particular recipe card plug in has vanished from my blog!!! I’m trying to figure out if I can retrieve my recipes or if I will just have to redo them all. I’ll have the recipe back one way or the other. :-(

    Oh good, I see you got it back up. I hope that means your plug in started working again and not that you had to rekey them in manually. Thanks

    • says

      Yes!! The plug-in designer actually had to go in on the backend and fix whatever happened. I’m not sure what he did, but I was sweating pretty hard there for a few days. I never even really thought of losing my work like that!! UGH!! Thanks for hanging in there. :-)
