Entertaining Dish: Asparagus and Ham Spirals

Went to church this morning for Easter Sunday, followed by an Easter Egg Hunt/Party at 2pm. Didn’t get home until 12:45 which means I had only and hour and a half to figure out what to bring. I knew the menu was running a little light on meats so I thought about ham.

I found this recipe and it just sounded wonderful – and it absolutely was!! Try this dish for your summer entertaining.


  • 1 can of crescent roll dough
  • Chive and onion cream cheese
  • Fresh Asparagus
  • Honey Ham deli style
  • Garlic Powder
  • Butter

Pre-heat the oven to 375.

Start you asparagus on the stove top, place the trimmed asparagus in a skillet and cover with water. Bring to a  boil and reduce to a simmer for 3-5 minutes. When completed, drain and set aside.

Open the can of dough, instead of triangles pair two triangles to create a rectangle. You’ll have four rectangles. Spread some cream cheese over the dough almost to the edges. Next lay down a few pieces of deli ham, top with asparagus stalks. Roll the dough over long ways and gently press to seal the edge. {Try to roll these tightly, the asparagus will fall out otherwise!}

With a sharp knife, slice the rolled spirals into 7-8 pieces. Place the pieces about 1 inch apart on a greased baking sheet. Melt about a tablespoon of butter and combine with a sprinkle of garlic powder. Brush or drizzle the butter over the tops of the spiral. Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown.
