During the summer I love me some fresh asparagus! In fact a town close by, Hadley, MA is known as the asparagus capital of the world heh. Hadley isn’t far from us and most grocery stores in the area have it fresh from the local farms all summer long. Hadley even has a festival every summer called The WGBY Asparagus Festival. If you are ever in the area you should definitely check it out.
Anywho, like most summer nights I decided to make some asparagus as a side to our main course. My husband was making burgers with ground beef mixed with onions, cheddar cheese, and baked bacon. I had always grown up with baked asparagus douced in olive oil and covered in bread crumbs so I decided to put a yummy twist on that recipe. Instead of olive oil I used the leftover bacon fat! What a meal! Recipe is below:
