Default Looking for a little variety

As the title says, I have about 13# of fresh picked asparagus from the weekend and I'm looking to see what everyone does with it or how they prepare it.



9# have been vacuum packed.
Making bacon wrapped asparagus tonight!

I may be the odd man out here but I like my asparagus uncooked raw. I just peel the base with a carrot or Potato peeler and eat.

I like to toss asparagus with a little olive oil and garlic. Then grill it with a little smoke. Don't over do it, I like them "tender crisp". I always make extra and toss it in the freezer to make a quick smoky cream of asparagus soup.

Love cream of asparagus soup, I can't make it worth a darn though

I tend to put it in a tin foil pouch with garlic infused evoo and sprinkle in some celery salt. Then slap it on the grill for a few minutes then flip and go a few more minutes.

Redneck Escargot:

Stuff baby Portobello mushrooms with chopped asparagus. Cover with fresh parmesan reggiano. Grill till bubbly.

Wrap stuffed shrooms in sourdough bread (think French dip) and dip in garlic butter.

Damn. I now know what's for supper.
