Buttery puff pastry, creamy brie, roasted asparagus, and sweet honey all come together in this simple, asparagus and brie puff pastry. These pastries are great for a Mother’s Day brunch, as an appetizer, lunch, or even a light dinner, making them perfect for entertaining. But they best part, they are so delicious!

As mentioned last week, I’m going to be sharing a couple of recipes inspired by my mom this week. With Mother’s Day this coming Sunday, I thought it would be fun to share some recipes that my mom loves, along with stories that you guys might not know.

For those of you who don’t already know, my parents got married really young. My mom was eighteen and my dad twenty-one. They had my oldest brother, Creighton six months after getting married. So, yes, it was the classic teenage marriage situation. Luckily for them, it all worked out, because thirty-three years and seven kids later they are still very happily married and have created a pretty solid family.

I mean, for the most part, there are seven of us after all…

My mom in my eyes is like super women, which sounds pretty cheesy, but I can’t think of better words to describe her. She’s my best friend, business partner, and therapist all at the same time. I have never met a single human being who can do so much and love so hard.

If you ever need anything done, you ask her. If you ever need a shoulder to cry on, or someone to vent to, you go to her. She’s pretty much just everything for everyone. She’ll take in complete strangers, work her butt off to get things done, and love her kids with all her heart (even if they’re annoying…as we can certainly be).

I know I’m biased, but she’s pretty incredible.

She’s also the person that encouraged me to start HBH, so really, we can all thank her for this site you see today!

Thanks mom!

If there’s one thing that mom loves when it comes to food, it’s carbs. Bread, pasta, and rice, are her main food groups. She throws in veggies and fruits because she knows it’s the “right” thing to do, but I think if she could, she’d really just live off of bread…and butter.

Oh, and some chocolate too.

One of the combos my mom loves most is brie and honey, or really just anything involving brie. Can you blame her?

That’s where these pastries come in. They have all the things my mom loves and then some. Bonus? They’re super quick and easy to make. Yes, please.

Here is how these are made.

First, you’ll need some puff pastry. I just buy the frozen puff pastry from the grocery store and let it thaw overnight, in the fridge or on the counter. If not overnight, a few hours will do the trick. Super simple.

Second, you’ll need brie and asparagus. Since I know some of you will ask, I leave the rind on my brie. It helps to keep the brie from melting all over the place. That said, feel free to remove the rind if you don’t like the texture. For the asparagus, I like to use asparagus that’s thin, as opposed to thick. The thinner asparagus cooks up nicely inside these little pastry bundles, and in general, I find thin asparagus to be tastier.

Third, once you have your pastries assembled, you’ll throw them in the oven. While they’re baking, make the thyme infused honey. Yes, you need this honey, and don’t think you can skip it because it’s what completes these pastries.

When the pastries are done baking, I like to drizzle them with honey and serve them warm, sprinkled a little flaky sea salt.

DONE. Simple. But delicious too.

If you’re planning to make these for Mother’s Day, you can assemble these the night before, then just bake before serving to make for easy entertaining.

What’s great about these sweet and savory pastries is that you can serve them for brunch along with eggs, serve them for lunch with a side salad, or even as a side dish for dinner. They’d also work great as an appetizer. So you see? These are so versatile. This is kind of the all around perfect recipe.

And did I mention that they’re delicious? Addictingly delicious?

Because they are.

Try them out tonight, you know, as a test run for Mother’s Day!

  1. I’m making these for Xmas eve . Can I make ahead a time and just not cook them? Then just brush the egg on right before going in the oven ?

    1. Hi Stacey,
      Totally, that will work well for you! I hope you love this recipe, please let me know how it turns out! xTieghan

  2. Hi!
    I’m making some for Xmas this year! But the kids don’t like asparagus. Do you think I could use green beans instead for some of them?

    1. Hi Tanya,
      Totally, that would be a great idea! I hope you love this recipe, please let me know how it turns out! xTieghan

    Teighan – thank you for such a great asparagus recipe. This was loved by all at dinner tonight. Loved the touch of Brie and the sweetness of the honey/thyme and butter. Thank you for the great step-by-step instructions and pictures. It looks so fancy but yet it was so easy. Will definitely be made again, especially when we want to impress friends and family! I can say I was a hard core Food Network fan for recipes until I found you. You’re the BEST and always looks forward to your posts!

    This is sublime with the honey! Recommend doubling the recipe for the honey. I used 1 1/2 bunches of thin asparagus. Loved it! Another winner from Tieghan.

    Aside from the fact I baked them at too low a temperature, husband and I loved these. (I did 350 instead of 375, quite by accident) we will definitely do these again.

    Everyone thought this recipe was very good. The only thing that went wrong was when the pastry is drizzled with the honey butter the pastry got soggy. They were very easy to make.

    Made this treat last night. It was a big hit!! I ended up cutting each bundle in half to make it manageable on the appetizer plate. The thyme honey put it over the top. Thanks for this gem.
