I used an idea from another recipe and substituted fresh green beans for the asparagus and added roasted red peppers in thin slices. These appetizers are sure to be a hit at your next party.
List of Ingredients
8 fresh asparagus spears, trimmed or fresh green beans
1 tube (8 ounces) refrigerated crescent rolls
1 carton (8 ounces) spreadable chive-and-onion cream cheese
4 thin rectangular slices deli ham
8 roasted red pepper slices
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
Preheat oven to 375° degrees F.
Place asparagus (or green beans) in a skillet; add 1/2 inch of water. Bring to a boil. Reduced heat; cover and simmer for 3-5 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain and set aside.
Separate crescent dough into four rectangles; seal perforations. Spread cream cheese over each rectangle to within 1/4 inch of edges. Top each with ham, leaving 1/4 inch uncovered on one long side. Place two asparagus spears and 2 red pepper slices along the long side with the ham; roll up and press seam to seal.
Cut each roll into seven pieces. Place cut side down 1 inch apart on greased baking sheets. Combine butter and garlic powder; brush over spirals. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
