Asparagus Ham Swirls


16 fresh asparagus spears, trimmed
3 Tbs. Dijon mustard
16 thin slices fully cooked ham
16 slices process Swiss cheese
2 eggs, beaten
1 c. dry bread crumbs
Cooking oil


In a skillet, cook asparagus in a small amount of water until crisp tender, about 6-8 minutes; drain well. Spread about 1 tsp. of the mustard on each ham slice. Top with 1 slice of cheese. Place an asparagus spear at one end (trim to fit if necessary). Roll up each ham slice tightly; secure with 3 toothpicks. Dip ham rolls in egg; then roll in bread crumbs. In an electric skillet, heat 1" of oil to 350. Fry rolls a few at a time, until golden brown, about 3-4 minutes. Drain on paper towels; keep warm. Cut each roll between the toothpicks into 3 pieces. Makes 4 dozen.
