Let's Make It
1
Heat oven to 400ºF.
2
Trim asparagus into 5-inch spears. Add to pan of boiling water; cook 2 to 3 min. or just until crisp-tender. Meanwhile, discard trimmed asparagus pieces or reserve for another use. (See tip.)
3
Drain cooked asparagus spears. Immediately add to bowl of ice water; let stand until completely cooled.
4
Meanwhile, cover baking sheet with parchment; spray with cooking spray. Unfold pastry sheet onto lightly floured cutting board; roll into 9-inch square. Spread with mustard; cut into 9 (3-inch) squares.
5
Drain asparagus; pat dry. Wrap 2 ham slices around 3 asparagus spears. Repeat with remaining ham slices and asparagus spears to make 8 additional bundles.
6
Place 1 cheese slice diagonally on top of each pastry square; top with wrapped asparagus bundle.
7
Whisk egg and water until blended; brush onto uncovered pastry points. Bring opposite points of pastry squares over tops of asparagus bundles; press pastry together to seal. Place on prepared baking sheet. Brush pastry with remaining egg wash; sprinkle with pepper.
8
Bake 20 to 22 min. or until golden brown.
Kitchen Tips
Tip 1
How to Trim Fresh Asparagus
Asparagus spears snap off naturally where they are tough. Simply bend the spear near the bottom end and it will break off at the right point. Or, remove an inch or so of the "woody" portion off the bottom of the stalks with a sharp knife.
Tip 2
How to Use the Asparagus Trimmings
Refrigerate the trimmed asparagus pieces in airtight container until ready to use, such as adding to your favorite salad or stir-fry.
Tip 3
Serving Suggestion
Serve these delicious asparagus bundles alongside lean meat, fish or poultry.
