Asparagus Appetizers in Phyllo Dough 

I made these for my son's graduation open house this past spring and they were such a big hit. So many people wanted the recipe that I thought I would go ahead and share it here.  These are outrageously tasty and crunchy and very easy to make.  The phyllo is brushed with good mustard and sprinkled with Asiago cheese and then rolled up with asparagus. The best part about these is that they can be assembled a day ahead, refrigerated and then just baked the next day right before serving - my kind of recipe!  And you don't even have to precook the asparagus - I just use them raw in the assembly.  I even made a video to show you how fast and easy these are to whip up.
