Steamed Balsamic Asparagus Topped with Crumbled Bacon

Asparagus with Crumbled Bacon
Tender asparagus spears, steamed and tossed with a balsamic vinaigrette and garnished with crumbled bacon taste wonderful! Somewhere on the worldwide web I read (and tried) a tip that bacon strips baked between two cookie sheets prevents a mess caused by spattering and keeps the bacon from curling. It worked exactly as promised. I baked the strips of bacon in a 350*F oven for 20 minutes until browned and crisp, then crumbled them.

2 bundles (or 48 spears) asparagus, trimmed
2 Tbsp. homemade balsamic vinagrette
8 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled


  1. Preheat oven to 350*F.
  2. Lay bacon strips in a single layer on a baking sheet and place another baking sheet on top.
  3. Bake bacon strips at 350*F for 20 minutes until crisp and set aside.
  4. Blanch asparagus spears and toss with homemade balsamic vinaigrette.
  5. Garnish with crumbled bacon and serve as a side dish.
