“Quick and easy appetizer or great for a snack.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 18 slices sandwich bread, crusts removed
  • French dressing, to taste (I use Wishbone's Salad Spritzers French)
  • Tony Chachere's Seasoning, to taste (or other Creole seasoning)
  • garlic powder, to taste
  • 5 ounces thinly sliced roast beef
  • 18 slices swiss cheese
  • 1 (15 ounce) can asparagus spears, drained
  • 13 cup butter, melted (optional)


  1. Flatten bread with a rolling pin.
  2. Drizzle each slice lightly with dressing (I use 3-4 pumps per slice from the spray bottle) and sprinkle with seasonings.
  3. Place a slice of roast beef on top of each slice of bread and a slice of cheese on each slice of roast beef.
  4. Place 1 asparagus spear (if very thin use 2 facing opposite directions) on each roll-up.
  5. Roll the bread up tightly around the asparagus (jelly roll style).
  6. You can either serve at this point or brush with melted butter and broil until cheese melts and bread browns to serve hot (about 5 minutes on LOW).
