Ham & Asparagus Subs

I know autumn officially starts in a few days, but you can squeeze in a picknic or two still on sunny days. Cram individual bread rolls with quality ham, asparagus tips and lemon dressing and add to the picnic spread.

24 asparagus tips (about 150 g / 5,3 oz)
4 large slices good ham, cut into thirds,
or 6 smaller slices, halved
50 g [1,75 oz] soft salted butter
A good squeeze lemon juice
12 mini sub rolls
A little salad dressing


Cook asparagus for 1-2 mins in boiling salted water. Drain well and dry on kitchen paper. Group in twos, then roll up in a slice of ham. Mash the butter with some black pepper and the lemon juice. Split rolls down the middle, but don’t cut completely in half. Spread with a little butter, then add an asparagus wrap to each like you would a hotdog. Add a squirt of salad dressing, if you like.
