Why This Recipe Works

Asparagus is a heavily debated vegetable. You either love it or hate it. In my family, I'm a lover and my hubby is a hater. However, he totally changed his mind after taking one bite of these asparagus puff pastry bundles!

I mean, what's not to love? Puff pastry is spread with herbed cream cheese, then layered with asparagus and parmesan cheese. Next, it's sprinkled with bagel seasoning and baked to perfection. This dish is easy, quick, and all kinds of sassy!

Puff Pastry Asparagus is the perfect appetizer for parties, Mother's Day, Easter dinner, or weekend brunch. It can be served a' la carte, paired with a strawberry salad for a light lunch, or as a side dish to your holiday ham.

Ingredients

Puff pastry is one of my favorite ingredients to use in a recipe. I've created some of my most popular dishes such as Blackberry Cheese Danish and Sheet Pan Taco Bake by starting with a roll of this multi-layered dough.

You'll only need 7 ingredients for these wrapped asparagus bundles that are ready to serve in less than 30 minutes!

  • puff pastry sheet - purchase the type that comes in a roll
  • herbed cream cheese - chive and onion is a good kind to use
  • fresh asparagus - look for small and tender stalks
  • olive oil - extra virgin olive oil is best
  • salt and pepper - flavors the asparagus
  • shredded parmesan - can use pre-shredded or grate by hand
  • egg wash - beat egg with milk or water
  • everything bagel seasoning - found at most stores in spice section

Stack 5 asparagus stalks diagonally across each rectangle and sprinkle with shredded parmesan cheese.

Take the top left edge of puff pastry and fold over the bottom right edge to make a bundle. Press it together tightly and seal. Repeat for each rectangle.

Brush pastry with egg wash, then sprinkle with bagel seasoning. Place pastries on a half sheet pan. Bake in a 425 degree oven for 10 to 15 minutes until pastry is golden brown and puffed to perfection!

Recipe FAQS

Can I use something besides asparagus?

Sure! If you're not a fan of asparagus, you can substitute broccoli, squash or zucchini to name a few vegetables. You'll probably need to adjust the baking time depending on the vegetable you choose.

What type of puff pastry is best for this recipe?

I've had the best results using WeWalka puff pastry sheets. They come with their own parchment paper and roll out into one long sheet which fits perfectly on a sheet pan. Be sure to purchase puff pastry and not phyllo dough. Crescent rolls might work, but won't puff up as much.

Can I substitute another seasoning?

If you can't find everything bagel seasoning (ad), you can use any type of herb or spice in your cabinet. I've used dried oregano, steak seasoning, and plain poppy seeds that work great too!

Expert Tips

  • Keep the puff pastry as cold as possible at all times. Refrigerate it between steps to make sure it's cold when it goes into the oven.
  • Bake at a high temperature to ensure a good rise.
  • Be sure to press the pastry closed when wrapping so it won't break open during baking.
  • Keep an eye on the oven since they heat differently. Take pastries out of oven as soon as they are golden brown and puffy.
  • Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat leftover asparagus bundles for 5 to 10 minutes in a 375 degree oven.

    What an incredible idea! The cheese, the asparagus all wrapped up in puff pastry-I can’t wait to try this!

  3. I would love to try this they look delicious.looks like they would be great for diabetics .

    Did you use just one sheet of puff pastry and roll it very thin? I barely rolled the pastry out and was able to make only 4, they were still very good.

    1. Hi Debra. I use a roll of puff pastry by Wewalka. It is very long and thin. If you use another kind (like Pepperidge Farm), it's best to roll it out into a thin rectangle if you can. So glad you liked the Asparagus bundles! They're one of my favorite recipes!

  5. 5 stars
    Excellent recipe!
    Very simple to make and a real eye-catcher. Best of all, they tasted fantastic!
    I used 150 crumbled feta (and mixed some chopped chives into it) instead of the cream cheese & grated pizza cheese instead of the parmesan. Two to three spears of asparagus in each.
    Cut my 275g (9.7oz) roll of puff pastry into 8 as directed. I thought they might be too small, but they turned out great - just like your photos.
    I baked them for about 15 mins at 200°C (395°F).
