7 Days of Thanksgiving Recipes - Asparagus Roll-Ups

So I am taking my favorite seven recipes from Thanksgiving this year and posting a new one every day. I'm going to start with the most amazing appetizer my sister made: Asparagus Roll Ups.  Simple, delicious, awesomeness!

Asparagus Roll Ups Appetizer


12 slices sourdough bread, crusts removed (use the crusts later to make homemade croutons!) 
1 (8 oz.) container whipped cream cheese 
2 tbsp fresh chopped chives 
8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled 
24 fresh asparagus spears, partially cooked 
1/4 c melted butter 
Fresh, grated Parmesan cheese 


Use a rolling pin to flatten each slice of bread.Combine cream cheese, chives, and bacon, stirring well. Spread bread with cheese mixture, covering to edges. Place 2 asparagus spears on each slice of bread; roll up, and place seam side down on a greased baking sheet. Brush each with butter, and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake at 400 degrees for 12 minutes.
