Asparagus with Bacon

Asparagus with Bacon

I have a friend who LOVES bacon and would eat it at every meal and workout twice as much just to adjust to arteries full of bacon grease. I just really like bacon and sometimes add it just to have the flavor without the fallout.

  • 3 strips of bacon
  • 1 bundle asparagus
  • lemon zest from 1 lemon

Cut raw bacon into bite-sized pieces (a strip is not a bite!). Easy way to do this is with kitchen shears straight into the pan. Cook  on medium heat moving as needed so they don't overcook. Once mostly cooked, drain most of the grease out (I pour mine into a paper towel-lined bowl or plate). Cut asparagus in half or thirds and toss into pan with bacon. The bacon will finish cooking and the asparagus will be cooked, but still have some bite. 

Fill bowl with bacon and asparagus, then top with fresh lemon zest. Fresh, easy, and sooo good!
