This is a variation of the original Roasted Asparagus 3 Ways recipe featured by blogger Elizabeth Dehn of Beauty Bets which I found from among Betty Crocker's recipes. I was so enamored by the looks of this recipe the first time I saw it in the weekly newsletter I receive, being a subscriber. I thought of trying it using bacon since I know my kids like bacon (though I don't usually make it a part of my grocery list because I don't like the sight of its oil and the price, of course!) and because prosciutto is not available in the nearest supermarket.
Here are the variations I made in the original recipe. First, I substituted prosciutto with bacon. Then, instead of roasting the asparagus I wrapped each piece in bacon slices and fried it in a slightly greased pan. Hmmm... I admit Betty's version is more healthy but do you think you would be able to resist the thought of crispy bacon with asparagus? Oh, just come to think of it!!!
Now, for my own version which I call Bacon-Asparagus Wraps, this is exactly what I did...
First, I prepared the following ingredients:
- 0.2 g asparagus, fresh (20-25 pieces)
- 12 slices bacon strips, cut in halves
- 1 tsp olive oil
And for the steps:1. Cut hard ends of asparagus.
2. Cut each bacon strip into two.
3. Wrap each piece of asparagus in half slice of bacon.
4. Fry in a slightly greased pan until bacon looks crispy.
5. Serve immediately.
Oh, I just love how it turned out! Ayana, my eldest daughter liked it and posted it on her FB wall.
It's best eaten right after cooking to enjoy the crispiness of the bacon. No need to add salt and pepper as the asparagus absorbed the flavor of the bacon.
I also posted this recipe in Just a Pinch Recipe Club, my first ever recipe posted in a foodie network.
Now, time to do some marketing for the weekly stocks! Happy weekend, everyone!
