Roasted Caramelized Bacon Asapargus

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.

Creamed Corn and Bacon

First you need to get little helpers to shuck and silk the corn for you.  You then can use a creamer to make creamed corn or cut the kernels off, put in blender with a little water to make creamed corn. 

Fry 6 pieces of bacon...saving the drippings.  Let your children crumble the bacon once it is cool.  If your children are like mine, you might as well cook the whole package.  They like to eat the bacon while making crumbles.  ~smiles~

Once the corn is creamed,  add water if it is too thick, put in a microwave safe dish.  Add 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper.  Add 1 to 2 teaspoons of bacon drippings.  Cook for 3 minutes in microwave.  (can be cooked on stove)  If it is still too thick add more water...too thin, cook longer.  Keep cooking at 2-3 intervals keeping an eye on it.  It is done when the starchy taste is gone.  Add chopped bacon and watch it disappear!~
