Asparagus Bacon Rollups #BrunchWeek

This post is sponsored in conjunction with #BrunchWeek. I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of the #Brunchweek recipes. All opinions are mine alone.
These Asparagus Bacon Rollups are a delicious appetizer or side dish made with crisp asparagus wrapped in buttery bread that is spread with cream cheese and bacon. It is perfect for Sunday brunch with your loved ones.
