Turkey Wrapped Asparagus
Turkey wrapped asparagus is yum. It's easy. It's healthy. It's good.
I rinse and then I snap the ends off of a bunch of asparagus.
I saw on a cooking show once that asparagus spears are meant to be snapped, not cut.
So, SNAP, I say! :)
Then I blanch the asparagus in a little sauce pan for a few minutes. (If you do it too long, they will get squishy- so don't over blanch) Blanch is just a fancy word for "put the food in a little boiling water for a few minutes and then run it under cold water." It's also one of the Golden Girls.
Then I take a piece or half a piece of Boars Head Maple Glaze Turkey and wrap it around a spear or two of asparagus.
Make up a pile and keep 'em in the 'fridge.
Yep, it's good! :)
