    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      (Optional) cook an additional 8 slices of bacon to wrap around asparagus into bundles (2 slices each bundle).
    2. 2
      Cook bacon until nice and crispy; remove to paper towels to drain. (If wrapping into bundles, cook 8 slices of bacon so that bacon is cooked, but NOT crispy. Crispy bacon is very difficult to wrap around the asparagus if it is too crispy).
    3. 3
      Steam the asparagus for 4 – 6 minutes.
    4. 4
      Remove some of the bacon grease from the pan, leaving two to three tablespoons. In a large fry pan or Wok, add onion, butter, bacon grease and cook onion until soft. Add asparagus to the pan and sauté over medium to low heat for about 4 minutes, turning asparagus every 15 seconds.
    5. 5
      Put in a bowl and toss with the mustard and vinegar. Add salt and pepper, to taste.
    6. 6
      (Optional) Split Asparagus into 4 bundles and wrap with 2 slices of bacon.

      Since I made this for just the 2 of us, I cut the recipe in half! We thoroughly enjoyed the Dijon mustard mix over this vegetable & will be making it again, next time for company! Thanks for sharing a great recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my adopted chefs in this Spring's Pick A Chef event]
