After reading other reviews, I decided to make this recipe using fresh steamed asparagus. I also added an 8 oz. container of light garden vegetable cream cheese to the mayo along with one chopped scallion. Wrapped the asparagus in very thin sliced ham as well. Delicious!! Read More

I was dissapointed in these. I think if I made them again I would use fresh asparagus instead. The canned kind was too mushy. It also seemed to be missing something to give it that extra zip. Read More

I made these for my friend's baby shower. They turned out pretty well and I got a lot of compliments. They are a little time-consuming to put together but not inordinately and are otherwise simple and easy. I used shallots in the mayonaise mixture instead of regular onion. I am making them again for my sister's wedding shower next month and I think I will use fresh steamed asparagus. There's nothing better than fresh asparagus and canned can be just too mushy. Most kids wouldn't go anywhere near these. Read More

I liked the recipe a lot but something was missing. I buttered the bread used chives instead of onion and added chopped pimento. I served 60 of these at a party for a friend who had just passed the bar exam and they were gone before all the guests had arrived! Everyone wanted the recipe. Read More

This is a very good starter recipe! I made these for a dear friend's baby shower. I used seasoning salt and a scallion but I also wrapped the asparagus with bacon. It turned out fantastic! Everyone wanted more! Read More

While I've never been a fan of seasoned salt OR canned asparagus I thought I'd give this recipe a shot. I did use sauteed asparagus(in OO) and it came out very good! I was very surprised with the seasoning salt added a tasty touch to the mayo. I didn't make the rolled sandwiches but a regular sandwich. I also used a bit of lettuce in the sandwich as well.

I've eaten asparagus sandwiches all my life. This might be a nice dress up for appetizers but I leave out the onion and seasonings and just slap some mayo on some soft bread and load it up with the asparagus spears. I like 'em mushy from the can. Fresh or canned they are still fairly expensive so this is a once in awhile treat anyway. YUM!! Read More
