posted at 14995. I've been playing with this and served it to guests last week. They just couldn't stop eating it.

I chopped garlic and chives into softened cream cheese, spread the cheese onto one slice of pancetta per spear. I wrapped that around the top end of slightly steamed, fat, delicious spears of asparagus. Onto the Q at low heat for about 4 minutes per side (2 sides).

It's a terrific hors d'oeuvre or an appetizer.

The pancetta gets crispy and if sliced thin enough to wrap easily yet not so thin that there are holes in it, the cheese stays in well.
