I like to wrap strips of bacon or thin sliced ham around asparagus and then roast it. That's really, really good!
I have a recipe for a mustard maple glaze for bacon-wrapped asparagus that just takes the dish to the next level. Super easy, but *so* tasty!
It took me a long time to warm up to asparagus, until I had it roasted. Then I really liked it. I still don't like it steamed, although I will eat it in an asparagus casserole. That's good, too. It does have a strong taste that takes some getting used to.
