Take advantage of asparagus season with this easy recipe. It can be served as an appetizer or side dish.

  • 24 slices Jarlsberg Swiss cheese (or other Swiss cheese)(approx. 4 1/2 inch squares)
  • 24 thin slices ham (approx. 4 1/2 inch squares)
  • 2 Tbsp. honey or dijon mustard
  • 16 spears of fresh uncooked asparagus, cut into 6-inch lengths
  • 10 sheets Athens Phyllo Dough
  • 1/3 cup melted unsalted butter (may be clarified)


Bring Athens Phyllo to room temperature.
Stack 5 sheets Phyllo, buttering each with melted butter. Cut buttered stack into 12 squares. Repeat using next 5 sheets of Phyllo.
Place slice of Jarlsberg Swiss cheese on the square, top it with one slice of ham; spread 1/4 teaspoon mustard over the ham.
Place an asparagus portion on top diagonally, near one point. Roll Phyllo over the asparagus, and continue rolling to form a pointed bundle.
