Have you ever roasted asparagus? It intensifies its woodsy flavor and makes each stalk succulent and flavorful. If you haven't tried this method before, This Roasted Asparagus with Bacon and Parmesan Cream is your chance to experience something really outstanding.
I have loved asparagus since I was a little kid. My dad hooked me on just dipping his steamed asparagus in mayonnaise and enjoying it that way. I can hardly imagine eating it like that now. I prefer roasted and a sauce that is a little more appetizing and appealing than a big dollop of plain mayo. You'll probably agree with me on that one. Makes me kind of chuckle just thinking about all of it. But I did love it prepared that way, save your judgement for later.
As an adult, I realized a lot of people will not eat asparagus because of the odor it causes when they go potty. I love asparagus too much to hold that against this delicious spring vegetable.
However, I do know how hard asparagus can be to pair with wine. Another adult problem! Luckily for all of us, I have written about the whole wine and asparagus debacle so you too can know what to expect when it comes drinking adult beverages with your beloved asparagus. Your welcome.
And this sauce...it's so easy to whip up and will forever change the way you serve and eat this veggie. I've come a long way since the mayonnaise dipping.
Serve this at your next brunch for lots of oohs, awes and eye-rolling deliciousness.
