Spring favorite

It's spring time and one of my favorite early vegetables is asparagus.  There is nothing better than asparagus that comes straight from the garden.  Trust me- once you have it fresh, you'll  want to start a plot of your own if you have the space.  Forget about all those fancy sauces that they use at the steakhouses.  Plain is best but I also have a way to fix it that does take it over the top and it is so easy!

Preheat oven to 400°.  I start with a nice bunch of fresh asparagus.  Trim off the woody ends and wash.  After I dry the stalks, I drizzle them with a bit of olive oil and then sprinkle with salt and pepper


Take your regular sliced bacon and cut it in half along the length of the slice with a pair of kitchen shears.  Wrap a slice of this bacon around each stalk asparagus and place on a sheet pan with a 1" lip (to contain the bacon grease).

Bake for 10 minutes, remove from oven and turn each stalk over.  Bake for an additional 8-10 minutes.  

Easy and so gooood!
