Cream Cheese and Asparagus Crescent Rolls

Print Friendly Version Print Friendly Version

Is there anything more perfect than cream cheese stuffed inside of a buttery crescent roll? We think not and everyone who sampled this recipe agree. As these babies bake up, the cream cheese slowly melts to create the perfect out of this world roll. I’ve had to make a second batch of these delights because they were gone before dinner was even on the table.

Ingredients:Cream Cheese and Asparagus Crescent Rolls

  • 1 package of crescent rolls
  • 18 thin asparagus spears, woody stems removed
  • 3 oz cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese (divided)
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400. Combine cream cheese and cheddar cheese, season with salt and pepper. Bring a small pot of water to a boil and season with salt. Blanch asparagus until crisp tender. Remove and stock with cold water to stop the cooking process. Dry thoroughly on paper towels. Roll out crescent rolls and separate at the seams. Spoon 1 teaspoon of the cream cheese filling across the wide end of each triangle. Add 3 spears of asparagus and roll up in the classic “crescent” shape. Place each roll on a cookie sheet and brush top of each roll with some of the egg wash. Bake for 10 minutes, until golden brown.
