Dijon Ham & Asparagus Roll-ups

Dijon Hame Asparagus Wrap2

Hooray for another virtual party!  Today we are honoring our food blogging friend, Kelsey, over at Apple a Day.  She is getting married, so Amy from Sing For Your Supper organized a virtual bridal shower to celebrate the anticipation of her big day.

I already had my eye on these crescent roll appetizers, so I knew almost instantly what I would contribute.  In real life, Ben and I ate these for lunch a few days ago, and oh boy were they good.  Even though one is pretty filling, I ate two of them and Ben snuck in three.  This tells you how lip-smacking they are, because he’s usually disciplined at stopping after one serving, no matter what the dish.

After checking out the recipe, I almost added a slice of cheese to each roll.  However, for reasons I don’t remember, I decided against it.  Interestingly, as we were eating these, Ben and I agreed that they tasted like there were cheese in them!  Strange, I know.  I’m glad I left the cheese out, since the taste was there anyway.

These ham and asparagus wraps are a nice option for an appetizer at a party because they offer both a vegetable and meat option.  They are also very easy to assemble so you can focus on the more important part of the party…having fun!

See what the other guests served up over at Kelsey’s and Amy’s blogs.

Dijon Ham & Asparagus Roll-ups

Printable Recipe

Yield: 8 roll-ups

16 asparagus spears, cut down to about 3 1/2-inches with the head
1 (8 oz) package refrigerated crescent rolls
1-2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
16 thin slices of ham

Preheat the oven to 375˚F.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone liner.

Place the asparagus in a covered casserole dish.  Add water until just covering the asparagus.  Cover and microwave on high for 2 minutes.  Meanwhile, separate the crescent roll dough into 8 triangles and lay flat on the baking sheet.  Spread a thin layer of the mustard on each triangle.

Drain the asparagus.  Wrap two spears together in two slices of ham, then place at the wide end of a dough triangle and roll up the dough.  Repeat with remaining ingredients.

Bake for 10-12 minutes, until slightly golden brown.  Serve warm.

  1. I’m not much a fan of ham, mustard or crescent rolls but somehow this combination seems like it would work well. I may have to try these!

  2. Nikki, these look so tasty! Thank you so very much for bringing these to my virtual shower. I appreciate it so very much!

    Oh. My. Word. These look divine, and I can’t believe how easy they are while still looking impressive! You’ve outdone yourself, Nikki.

  4. You don’t have to convince me – I’m sure they are delicious! Very pretty pictures, too.

  5. These look fabulous! I sort of wish my husband liked asparagus though…oh well, more for me!

  6. This is my kind of appetizer – easy and delicious! I just know my entire family would love these! Thanks again for participating- it’s been such fun!

  7. Nikki – these are so elegant and perfect!

  8. I’m not a big ham person, but I would totally eat these. I’ll definitely have to try them soon!

  9. Those are beautiful and look sooo delicious!!

    Great blog; happy I found you!

  10. These combine some of my favorite things!
    Ham, asparagus, and crescent rolls. Can’t wait to try them!

  11. I love the idea of using crescent rolls for an appetizer that seems gourmet! I have used them in the past to make my own pigs in a blanket and they are always a hit.

  12. These are so cute! I’ve seen all sorts of pork-wrapped asparagus recipes, but I’ve never tried one. I need to remedy that!

  13. These are lovely, and I love the take on an old classic. I wonder if prosciutto or Serrano ham, maybe a thicker cut, would still have enough presence inside the roll. Seems like the possibilities are really endless, maybe I can figure a way to get my kids to eat this!

  14. Wow…the rolls are looking amazing. I have never tried it but wud love to have it. Congrats on top 9 !

  15. I made these for the first time last night and they are so delicious!!! I see what you mean about the cheese taste. As soon as I bit into one it did seem like there was a hint a cheese. I must say these are so easy and soooo good, my daughter even loved helping me make them

  16. I love asparagus. Too bad this shower wasn’t a really one with all the goodies everyone made!!

  17. I featured you today! :) Hooray! I’d love if you stopped by!

  18. Making these now and serving with some greens dressed in lemon juice and olive oil for a quick, yummy lunch.

  19. Just wanted to tell you that I came across this recipe on Pinterest, and made it last night – SO good! I think I might add a little bit of cheese next time, even though they were still great without it. Thanks!

  20. These look divine and I can’t wait to try them out!
    Also, wanted to let you know that I will be featuring this recipe on my blog on Tuesday.

    I made them with prosciutto since I had it on hand and they were awesome! I just started a new job and I’m thinking I’ll make some to take to the office on Monday!

  22. Found your recipe on Pinterest and decided to try it out. It’s delicious! I’m going to make this again, but change up a few things. I will feature your recipe and show a link to your page if that is okay with you. I’ve just started blogging, so I don’t have much on my page yet. Thanks for sharing your recipes :)
