Baked ham & asparagus pastry rolls

I was cleaning up my blog photo folder last night when I came across some older dishes I've cooked these last couple of months which I completely forgot about. One such dish was some lovely fresh asparagus I had recently purchased and wrapped with a bit of ham and mustard in puff pastry and sprinkled with parmesan cheese.

It was very simple but made a lovely light lunch. You could serve with salad or make a bit smaller with half an asparagus spear and serve as a canape.

Baked Ham & Asparagus Pastry Rolls

  • puff pastry sheets
  • sliced ham
  • fresh asparagus, hard bit of stem removed
  • parmesan cheese, grated
  • whole egg mayonnaise
  • dijon mustard
  1. Heat oven to 180 deg C.
  2. Slice a square piece of ready made puff pastry into four.
  3. Mix mayonnaise and mustard together (use half mustard to mayonnaise, depending on the number of pastries you're making) and add a teaspoon full to the centre of the pastry.
  4. Add a small piece of sliced ham and sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
  5. Place 1 or 2 asparagus spears on top and fold up pastry.
  6. Sprinkle top with more parmesan cheese and bake until golden (approx 15-20 minutes).



  1. Anne, I'm not the biggest fan of ham. How do you think turkey would work in this recipe?

  2. Great recipe, Anne! And I love your pictures. My SIL just realized her asparagus came early this year do to our nice spring and she missed it!
