Best-Ever Asparagus/Ham Rolls

This is an easy dish to prepare, yet elegant enough for company. I'm always asked for the recipe. I adapted it from one of my mother's recipes. And now, this is one of the few ways I can get our daughters to enjoy asparagus!
  • Total Time
    Prep: 20 min. Bake: 20 min.
  • Makes
    8 servings


  • 1-1/2 pounds fresh asparagus, trimmed
  • 16 slices sandwich-type ham
  • Prepared mustard
  • 6 tablespoons butter, cubed
  • 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 6 green onions, thinly sliced, optional


  • Cook asparagus until crisp-tender. Spread one side of each ham slice with mustard. Roll ham around 2-3 asparagus spears. Layer rolls, seam side down, in an 11x7-in. baking dish. Set aside.
  • In a saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Blend in flour until smooth. Slowly stir in milk, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in cheese and, if desired, onions. Pour over ham rolls.
  • Cover and bake at 350° for 20 minutes or until heated through.
