Easy Baked Cheese & Asparagus Bundles Recipe Is Appetizer or Side Dish Material

Anything wrapped in puff pastry is good, right? These baked asparagus appetizers are no exception! With just a few simple ingredients – asparagus, olive oil and cheese – you can serve something that looks like you spent all day making.

This easy puff pastry-wrapped asparagus recipe can be served as a side dish, or cut them in half to serve them as appetizers. So easy and so delicious!

While many think of asparagus only in the spring, the vegetable is available year-round and can be served throughout the fall and holiday season. These oven-baked appetizers are delicious hot out of the oven or at room temperature, which makes them perfect for Christmas parties and New Year's Eve.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes


  • 1 bunch asparagus, trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 sheets frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 2 cups shredded Gruyere cheese (Swiss, fontina or mozzarella would work as well)
  • 1 egg, beaten, for an egg wash

Here's how to make it: 

  1. On a floured work surface, roll out the puff pastry into a rectangle about double its original size. Cut into six squares. 
  2. Put the asparagus into a bowl and drizzle with the olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and toss to coat. 
  3. Put about 3 or 4 asparagus spears onto the puff pastry shells and roll up from the corners. Press to seal. Place them on a baking sheet that's been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.
  4. Brush the pastry with the beaten egg. Bake in a preheated 425-degree F oven until puffed and golden brown, about 12 to15 minutes.

Yum! Love this idea. I've baked individual asparagus spears that I've wrapped in filo dough with olive oil and parmesan. So good.
Fabulous suggestion!
