FFwD - Asparagus with Bacon Bits


This week's FFwD dish is Asparagus with Bacon Bits.  It's just what it says on the tin - blanched asparagus with bacon bits.  I liked the blanched asparagus, something I have never done before, as it keeps the asparagus green and fresh.  The bacon and onion gave the dish a lovely flavour zing, and the lemon and oil dressing (I just used olive oil) gave just enough coverage and flavour without overwhelming the other flavours.

To see what the other FFwD cooks thought of this dish, visit the LYL section of the website.

May you have a restful Good Friday and a Happy Easter.

What a yummy side dish for Easter. Asparagus is very inexpensive right now. Perfect timing.
Bacon improves everything.

Don't you think maybe Dorie should have called this Bacon with bits of asparagus? I did enjoy the combination. Happy Easter.

I usually roast my asparagus or steam it and fix some hollandaise sauce, but i also like Dorie's blanching and of course, adding the bacon makes it even more delicious. Yours looks great. I hope you have a very Happy Easter, Gaye!

Looks wonderfully delicious and oh so beautiful! I wish I had seen this prior to Easter so I could have served it with Easter dinner as it just looks perfect for that!! Nice photo.
