Cheesy Asparagus Appetizer


  • 10 Rhodes™ Dinner Rolls, thawed and risen
  • 1 pound fresh asparagus
  • 1 cup grated Swiss cheese, divided
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3/4 cup half-and-half
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg


  1. Spray board or counter top with non-stick cooking spray. Combine rolls together to form a ball and roll into a 14-15 inch circle. Press onto the bottom and up the sides of a sprayed 12-inch deep dish pizza pan.
  2. Cut 3-4 inches from top of each asparagus spear. Set tops aside. Cut stem ends into 1-inch pieces.
  3. In a small saucepan, bring water to a boil. Add the 1-inch asparagus pieces; cover and boil 2-3 minutes. Drain and immediately place asparagus in ice water. Drain and pat dry. Arrange the blanched asparagus over crust. Sprinkle with 1/3 cup cheese and parsley.
  4. In a bowl combine eggs, half-and-half, salt, pepper and nutmeg; pour into crust. Arrange asparagus tops over egg mixture. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
  5. Bake at 375 degrees F 30-35 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.
  6. Let cool for 10 minutes before cutting.
