Top Review by Sydney Mike

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]

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. (Optional) cook an additional 8 slices of bacon to wrap around asparagus into bundles (2 slices each bundle).
  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. Steam the asparagus for 4 – 6 minutes.
  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. Put in a bowl and toss with the mustard and vinegar. Add salt and pepper, to taste.
  6. (Optional) Split Asparagus into 4 bundles and wrap with 2 slices of bacon.
