Ingredients

  • ⅓ cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons chopped roasted red bell peppers
  • 1 clove garlic, pressed
  • ½ pound thinly sliced JENNIE-O® Oven Browned Turkey Breast, from the service deli
  • 1 pound asparagus, trimmed
  • 10 sheets phyllo pastry sheets
  • ¼ cup butter, melted
  • ½ cup finely grated Asiago cheese

Directions

  1. Dipping sauce: In blender, combine mayonaise, bell pepper and garlic. Blend until smooth. Refrigerate.
  2. Heat oven to 375°F. Cut turkey slices in half and wrap each asparagus spear with turkey slice. Set wrapped spears aside. Stack phyllo pastry sheets; cut in half cross-wise. Cover with plastic wrap to keep from drying out during assembly. Brush half of each phyllo sheet lightly with melted butter and sprinkle with cheese. Fold unbuttered part over buttered cheese half; lightly butter top.
  3. Roll each turkey asparagus spear in the phyllo, scrunching slightly, so that the layers of pastry will be flaky. Place each piece on baking sheet and brush with melted butter and sprinkle with cheese. Repeat until all the asparagus turkey spears are rolled. Bake 15 to 17 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy. Serve with dipping sauce.
