Asparagus is one of my favorite spring vegetables. I prepare it a few times a week when it’s in season. One evening I had one sheet of puff pastry I needed to use up plus this beautiful asparagus. So I decided to make individual swiss and asparagus tarts.

Michigan asparagus is a generous sponsor of #BrunchWeek. The season in Michigan runs from early/mid-May through June. The really cool thing about asparagus from Michigan, besides they are one of the only domestic producers, is that, when harvested, the stalks are snapped virtually eliminating the woody bottom.

It’s always best to buy as local as produce as you can but that is not always possible. The next best thing is to buy produce from the US.

Although it’s a really easy dish to prepare, it’s delicious and impressive. I would suggest making extras. Your guests will thank you.

With only three ingredients, this recipe whips up in no time. You do need to plan though. The puff pastry needs to thaw and, if you’re like me, you’ll need to shred your Swiss cheese.

If you’ve read some of my other posts, I prefer to shred my own cheese due to the use of anti-caking agents in pre-shredded cheeses. There is little prep work that needs to be done to the Michigan asparagus.
