I was strawberry picking at a local farm today and saw they had fresh asparagus and had just been picked. I wanted to enter a contest so I purchased a bundle and came home to study how I would prepare my fresh beauties. I scanned through some recipes and thought I might use one of them and decided I would just try something I had in the cabinet that is so good on this pecan salad I eat in a local resturant. So I baked my beauties in the oven and tried my very on recipe which I and my husband think is very good. It is the season for fresh Asparagus and it is just something about home grown.
Snip off the tuff ends of the Asparagus then place on and lightly greased jelly roll pan about 15x10. Drizzle with about 2 teaspoons of olive oil and spkinke with the salt and pepper toss to coat and place in the preheated 400 degree oven for 15 min. or fork tender.
In a sauce pan brown the butter not burnt just lightly browned remove form heat and add the dressing and worchestershire mix well drizzle over the hot Asparagus toss a little to coat well then arrange in a dish.
I used toasted almonds and maple flavored bacon to top off this dish of Asparagus and I must say it is very good. Be sure to serve while hot.
