I love this delicious recipe because it includes three of my favorite locally produced foods—ham, asparagus and cheese. Prepared with leftover Easter ham and fresh asparagus, these rolls make an excellent springtime meal.

In those days, chicken was a treat, and we relished every bite—especially if Grandmother cooked it!
