We love breakfast for supper and eat it quite often. The other night we had it again with; Bakin’ Bacon, grits, Homemade Tall and Fluffy Biscuits, Perfect Scrambled Eggs, Perfect Fried Eggs and Microwave Fluffy Pancakes. As usual, I wanted something a little different and remembered the asparagus I had in the fridge that desperately needed to be cooked. I made Roasted Asparagus with it and decided to add that to my plate. It was wonderful and will have a place on my breakfast menu, whether morning or evening, from now on. There really isn’t a recipe. You cook the grits, roast the asparagus, or cook in a skillet, and cook your egg the way you like it, season and enjoy! You see how I like mine.

This soup was so delicious and easy to make. I roasted two bundles of asparagus we ate one...okay a little more than one, and I made soup with the rest. This was enough for hubby and I. You will definitely want to make more.

This has got to be the best asparagus I have cooked! It is caramelized, has a background taste of bacon cooked in it, a little peppery, a saltiness that is just right and topped with crumbled bacon. MMMMM...I could have eaten it all! Next time I will definitely cook two bundles. <3 and hugs!
Roasted Bacon Asparagus
1 lb asparagus
3 pieces bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
1-2 tablespoon bacon grease
sea salt, to taste
freshly ground pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 400F. Spray cookie sheet with non-stick spray. Rinse asparagus and trim the tough ends off by bending at the bottom. The tough part will break off.
Place on cookie sheet in a single layer and drizzle with bacon grease.
Roll asparagus around to coat.
Sprinkle with sea salt and freshly ground pepper.
Cook at 400F for 10 minutes. Check and turn asparagus over.
Cook another 5-10, maybe 15 minutes depending how thick the stalks are or until crisp tender and they begin to caramelize.
Put on serving plate and add more sea salt and pepper if desired.
Sprinkle with crumbled bacon.
