Roasted Asparagus with Bacon
I never thought I could make Asparagus taste any better until I put bacon with it! After all, everything is better with bacon right? Not only does it have a delicious bacon flavor, but parmesan cheese too! This Roasted Asparagus with Bacon recipe couldn’t be any easier or taste any better. So give it a try but be careful, it’s hard to stop eating it!
This was my very first picking of my garden asparagus this year. I even gave some more to my daughter. I will be picking and eating asparagus until the first week of June. I can make a meal out of asparagus when it is this good.
In a large bowl mix the asparagus with the olive oil.
Spray a large cooking sheet with cooking spray.
Evenly spread the bacon on the cooking sheet.
Place the asparagus on top of the bacon in a single layer if you can.
Sprinkle the asparagus with salt, pepper and the parmesan cheese.
Bake in a preheated 425 degree oven for 13-15
minutes or until the asparagus is as tender as you like.
Place on a serving plate and serve hot.

Just about everything is better with bacon. I like my bacon.
We cook up 2 pounds of bacon, crumble it and freeze it. I just take out whatever I need for a recipe and it’s already cooked!
I love green asparagus and actually I’m going to have it today!! 😊
I will be picking it from my garden every 2-3 days until June 4th. So good….enjoy yours!
