IMG_1940.jpeg

This is another recipe that is helpful if you already have bacon prepared. It should be a kitchen staple… no better way to get your kids to eat vegetables!

 4 strips bacon
1 tbsp grass-fed butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 lb. asparagus trimmed
Sea salt and black pepper, to taste

If you don’t have bacon already prepared: Cook 4 strips of bacon in a skillet on medium high.
Remove bacon.
Drain a portion of bacon grease but reserve some for further cooking.
Reduce heat to medium.

If you already have bacon prepared, heat butter in place of the above steps.
Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute.
Add the asparagus to the skillet and sauté for about 3-5 minutes until bright green
Add desired amount of salt and pepper.
While the asparagus is cooking, chop the bacon into small pieces.
Add the bacon back to asparagus and cook for another 30-60 seconds.
