Happy 2014! We have officially made it! Crazy huh?

What did you do to ring in the New Year last night? Did you stay up until the ball dropped at midnight, or head to bed early? Did you get a kiss from that special someone?

Over here is Texas we brought in the New Year with family. Mike and I had people over to eat appetizers, Christmas Cookies {yes, we still have some}, and Sparkling Cider or Champagne! To finish off the night, we listened to the echo of a bizzaillion fireworks being put off by our next door neighbors. Usually the next morning our street looks like a war zone from all the firework shells/cases left over. Crazy Texans like them some fireworks, thats for sure! 🙂

I hope 2014 brings you many blessings, happy memories, goals accomplished, dreams come true, lessons learned, and spiritual growth.

Ok, so here’s to the first recipe of the new year! An Asparagus Rollup with a Balsamic Reduction Drizzle. This appetizer is outrageously easy to make! You only need 3 ingredients… ummm… awesome! The asparagus is perfectly roasted with a slight crunch still left in the spear, then wrapped in a buttery Crescent Roll and topped off with a sweet thick homemade Balsamic Reduction! It is absolutely heaven in one bit. People will be asking you where you got that appetizer recipe all night! 🙂 {just send them my way.. hehe}

How to Make These Asparagus Rollups

To get started, pre-make the Balsamic Reduction and refrigerate. Preheat oven to 375º.

Wash and cut wooden bottom off 32 asparagus spears {last 2″ of asparagus}.

Remove Pillsbury Crescent Rolls from 2 cans and lay out in long rectangle.  Separate each perforated roll, there should be 8 in each can. Put 2 asparagus spears each roll and roll up the crescent roll like you normally would.

    Quick question: if asparagus are thick, is it better to blanch them first? Or does roasting for 12 minutes make them tender regardless of whether they’re thick or thin? Thanks!

    1. Krista

      Roasted will make them tender regardless of the size Elaine. 🙂 These are tender and cooked with a little bit of a crunch for texture. Hope you enjoy!

    We sat on the couch and watched movies. Ken went to bed right before midnight but I stayed up to watch the ball drop!

    I love this recipe, Krista! So easy and one of my favorite veggies just happens to be asparagus! Pinning and featuring on social media. Thanks for sharing at Marvelous Mondays!

      haha.. sounds exactly like us. We were in bed before midnight, but the sound of the fireworks in our neighborhood going off at midnight let us know that the new year had hit. 🙂

      So glad you liked the recipe Julie, and thank you for sharing on social media and pinning! You rock!

    I’m drooling!! Seriously, these look like the best appetizer EVER. I love asparagus and can imagine that the combination of the balsamic drizzle and crescent rolls yield amazing results.

  6. Samantha @ Five Heart Home

    These look amazing, Krista…I haven’t met a crescent roll I didn’t like! And your “crazy Texans and their fireworks” comment made me laugh…our neighbors were still shooting them off at 2:00 a.m. this morning! Hope your 2014 is off to a great start…Happy New Year!

    1. Krista

      haha.. me either.. they are basically the best thing ever! Buttery goodness and all. 🙂

      As far as the fireworks, it was crazy. As soon as 12am hit it was like a firework bomb went off. My dad actually woke up and went outside to see what was going on. Too funny! 🙂 Gotta love Texas!
