"Although these are supposed to be an appetizer, I served them for our breakfast this morning, along with eggs and fruit. They're absolutely delicious! Since it's just the two of us, I'm going to put a few of them in the freezer so my husband and I can enjoy them at a later date. I will definitely make these again!"

"I make this all the time and always get asked for the recipe. If I don't have asparagus, I use bacon. I like to keep some on hand in freezer for last minute entertaining. I freeze them in the big rolls before cutting up in small pieces!"
