Recipe

One of my favorite bloggers, Lisa from Snack Girl recently shared this simple and delicious recipe on her blog. With asparagus just coming into season and readily available at the grocery store this is the perfect side dish for any meal and made extra special with the bacon wrapping. As Lisa points out when sharing this recipe, although bacon is one of the most delicious things out there, it is loaded with fat, salt, and calories. But that doesn't mean we need to shy away from it and all it’s great smoky flavor, instead we just need to think about how to use it as a condiment. This recipe does just that and roasting the asparagus adds great flavor. I followed her tip of broiling the asparagus for the last two minutes and the bacon became nice and crispy.
