~~Yummy Asparagus Roll Ups!!~~~

Good Saturday  evening! I wanted to share an appetizer that I made for a birthday dinner last night. There are many variations of these roll ups, and this one is different from ones I have made in the past. These were VERY delicious!
 You will see in the recipe that you take regular sandwich bread, cut the crusts off, and roll it flat with a rolling pin!!!
 Then the cream cheese mixture is spread onto the bread.
 Next you sprinkle the bacon bits onto the bread.
 I decided to sprinkle them onto the 2 sides of the bread so that when  cut them in half it made it easier, and the bread didn't tear.
 Here they are all rolled up. I forgot to get a picture of them cut in half and the out of the oven. But, they were a big hit, and very easy to assemble so I would highly recommend them for your next party!
ere is the recipe:
