Asparagus with crispy bacon and potato

Asparagus with crispy bacon and potato




  • 2-3 bunches asparagus
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 2 rashers bacon, finely chopped
  • 2 potatoes, peeled and diced


Steam or microwave potato pieces until tender, drain. Heat oil in a pan over medium heat, add bacon and potato and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until crisp and golden.

While bacon mixture is cooking, steam or microwave asparagus until bright green and just tender.

Arrange asparagus on plates and top with bacon mixture.



  • Now my kids don‰t flock to the table for asparagus, but maybe yours do. Instead of the asparagus, try beans or peas for the little ones.
  • I did not serve this with a dressing, but a squeeze of lemon juice or a dollop of mayo would work well.
