My family, including my kids, love Asparagus so when we see it on sale we definitely buy a bunch or 2 for cooking. We have our favorite asparagus dishes like the cheesy Asparagus with Parmesan or the  Asparagus Tart but I thought of doing another quick and easy stir-fry type asparagus dish so we don't get bored with the same old, same old.

Thankfully, I still had some bacon and mushrooms on the fridge so I thought it may be a good idea to cook the asparagus with a bit of bacon and why not throw in some mushrooms for good measure!! We definitely had a lovely lunch with this. I ate it with eggs -- that was my late breakfast or brunch! It think they really went to gether very well.

The best thing, this is so easy to prep and quick to cook. Less than 15 minutes. Season it to taste and my Asian in me would recommend a little bit of soy sauce for seasoning in place of salt, just to give it some flavor lift but if that's not your thing - salt and pepper will do! Enjoy!

  3. I'm the only one in my house that likes asparagus, and I'm fine with that. I figure the less people to eat it, the more there is for me! Plus, bacon... makes everything better!

  10. I'll take asparagus any way I can get them (unless they're overcooked). Now, add bacon and mushrooms and you've made a heavenly dish. I've made peas and green beans with bacon and mushrooms but never asparagus. Thank you for the great inspiration!
