Grilled Asparagus Spears with Bacon

2012-08-16

Asparagus grilled with bacon

Ingredients:

  • 1.1kg (2½) thick asparagus
  • Salt & freshly ground black pepper
  • 300g rindless smoked streaky bacon (see tip)
  • 2 tbsp. (30ml) olive oil
  • Snipped chives & herb mayonnaise to serve

Method:

  • Trim the asparagus, and then cook in boiling salted water for 1minute. Drain and plunge into cold water.
  • Wrap a single bacon rasher around the middle of each asparagus spear, starting about 2.5cm (1inch) from the tip.
  • Place asparagus on a grill pan; brush with oil and season with pepper. Cook turning for 6minutes or until bacon is crisp and asparagus is tender. Sprinkle with chives and serve with an herb mayonnaise.

Tip: Thin bacon rashers are best for this recipe. If rashers are thick, lay them on a chopping board and run the back of a knife over to stretch them.

    For breakfast I had:
    2 chocolate chip waffles and lemonade.
    Lunch: brisket sandwich and lemonade.
    Snack: ice cream cone
    Dinner: Meatloaf, baked potato, salad, a little cantaloupe, and lemonade.
    Dessert: my dad’s custard pie. a couple icepops throughout the day.
    Also why is it that I never really have an appetite in the first place unless I’m close to starving or recovering from an illness (which nearly never happens)? And what appetite I do have is completely lost in the summer (unless I’m going through a growth spurt which I’m not) even though I eat anyways. In fact I usually eat less, example of what I may eat tomorrow:
    Breakfast: Bacon, lemonade (yes that is it).
    Lunch: Some tyson’s chicken or a hotdog, maybe a few chips, lemonade.
    Dinner: Quiche, lemonade.
