Spring is officially here and the warm weather is finally coming out to greet us. The birds are chirping, the sound of lawn mowers is filling the neighborhood and the picnic baskets are coming out of hiding. I'll take any opportunity to eat in my backyard with my family when the sun is shining and it's always a fun challenge to come up with new recipes to enjoy outdoors. I like recipes I can prepare in advance so there's no stress as we sit down to eat. I also love side dishes that we can eat cold or room temperature so there are a few items at the table that didn't come off the barbecue. A little variety is the spice of life, right?!?
This recipe for asparagus wrapped in lamb bacon is so beyond simple, only takes a few minutes to prepare and tastes absolutely delicious right out of the fridge! The fresh asparagus, salty lamb bacon and sweet brown sugar come together for the perfect side dish or snack that you will definitely want to eat at your next picnic. I suggest making extra because you might want to eat them all as soon as they come out of the oven.

I purchased the lamb bacon at Pomegranate in Brooklyn, NY. You can also order lamb bacon online from KOL Foods. If you know where else lamb bacon can be purchased, in store and online, please let me know in the comments below!
