Fresh asparagus is the best in the early spring and is wonderful in this recipe. The ham and Dijon mustard add delicious flavor which will help this dish disappear fast.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin

"A very easy, tasty and satisfying light dinner.

Smoked honey turkey lunchmeat and cooked for 27 minutes."

"Delicious! I modified it a bit - left out the horseradish (because I don't like the stuff), and added some lemon juice. I also put a piece of cheese (provolone) inside each roll. I put the sauce all over, rather than just in the middle, as pictured, because I thought the asparagus might dry out in the oven otherwise. I also didn't use the egg, as I already had an egg dish. It was sooooo good! Everyone loved it - will definitely make this again!"

"I loved this recipe. This is probably the best tasting way that I have ever made asparagus before."

"Presentation was so elegant on my Thanksgiving brunch table. Flavor was wonderful. Lots of compliments . This did not take long to prep, no need for toothpicks. Maybe because I cut off the end a little bit more because I wanted the more tender part. Left the spear tops exposed but evened out the bottom with the ham slices. Also put it in an 11x7 pan then."
