Swiss Ham and Asparagus Roll-Ups
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 3 tablespoons flour
- 1/2 teaspoon onion salt
- 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
- 2 cups milk
- 1 cup swiss cheese, grated
- 1-1/2 cup cooked rice
- 8 slices good cooked ham, sliced thick enough to hold together when rolled
- 24-32 fresh asparagus spears, roasted and cooled
- 1 cup swiss cheese to spread on top of sauce
In a saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Whisk in flour, nutmeg and salt. Cook for 2 – 3 minutes. Stir in milk and cook, stirring until thickened. Add 1 cup swiss cheese and stir until cheese is melted. Blend 3/4 cup sauce into the cooked rice. Season with salt and pepper.
Spread equal amounts of rice mixture on ham slices. Top with 3 or 4 asparagus spears, roll ham around the filling and secure with toothpicks if necessary.
Arrange rolls in shallow baking dish. Pour remaining sauce over rolls and top with 1 cup grated swiss cheese. Cover dish with foil for the first 15 minutes of baking. Bake at 350 degrees until bubbly and heated through, about 25-30 minutes.
