1 jar or can of asparagus (see note)
4 slices of American Cheese
2-3 Tbs of butter or margarine
1Tbs of mayonnaise (optional)
salt and pepper to taste (see note)
slices of thin white bread
Smash the cheese, butter, mayo, salt and pepper into a smooth paste.
Note: add the salt after you mix all the ingredients together because the cheese will have salt.
Note: You can use fresh steamed asparagus if you like. But I think the jar asparagus has a soft and tender texture that is perfect for these very dainty little sandwiches.
Cut the asparagus to the length of the bread.
Stack a few slices of bread and use a serrated knife to cut the crust off all the sides of the bread.
Use a rolling pin to gently flatten the bread. You want it slightly flattened so it is easy to roll up the sandwich.
Spread some of the cheese/butter mixture on the bread and lay out an asparagus piece. Roll until it forms a cigar shape. You can also cut in the middle and make two little rolls if you are serving them as hors d'oeuvres.
