Asparagus is one of my favorite vegetables to eat. I love it cooked any way and this recipe was no different. I found this recipe over at For the Love of Cooking and since it had bacon in it I knew that I had to make it for dinner. It was super simple to make and the bacon gave it a lot of flavor. Adjust the Dijon based on your liking, if you like a stronger flavor add more.
Sautéed Asparagus with Bacon and Dijon
~ 2 slices of bacon
~ 1 bundle of asparagus spears, woody ends removed and cut into thirds
~ 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
~ salt and pepper, to taste
1. Add your bacon to the skillet then cook until crisp. Remove bacon to a paper towel to drain and then crumble into large bits.
2. Add the chopped asparagus to the skillet with the bacon grease. Cook, stirring often, for 4-5 minutes or until crisp and tender. Add the Dijon mustard then season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Gently stir until evenly coated. Toss in the crumbled bacon and serve immediately.
