    Absolutely delicious! I made this recipe the first time I ever tried asparagus, and I've been in love with them ever since.

    I meant I added extra bacon.

    I have never really cared for asparagus before. But my two teenage sons came home from a friends raving about them. So this past Easter I made this recipe for them and the rest of the family. Thought what the heck I will try them. I liked them a lot and the kids ate them all up. Hardly anyone else could get a bite.
