Five minute sautéed asparagus and mushrooms make an easy spring side dish. Simple enough for every day, fancy enough for a special meal, mushrooms optional. I included easy directions to prepare the asparagus for cooking.
Bacon Wrapped Asparagus: Preheat oven to 400. Divide asparagus into bundes of 3-4 spears. Wrap each in a slice of bacon. In a saucepan, melt a stick of butter, 1/2 c. brown sugar, 1Tbspn soy sauce, 1/2tsp garlic salt, and 1/4 tsp black peppe and bring to a boil. Pour mix over bundles and bake until bacon looks done.
