Eat Your Veggies

You know when you’re planning a small gathering and you’re trying to figure out a good snack/light meal for your friends? Well, I have a delicious meal that’s somewhat good for you too: bacon wrapped asparagus with feta!

First off, credit for this recipe goes to Mommy Savers and it’s quite an excellent one. Now, you’ll only need just a few ingredients:

– A bunch of asparagus
– Olive oil
– Salt
– Bacon
– Feta cheese

Easy as that. One of my favorite things about this recipe is the fact that we use asparagus that has several health benefits.

First, you will preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Now, all you’ll need to do cut off the ends of the bottoms of the asparagus, drizzle it with the olive oil and then sprinkle some salt over it. Gather the asparagus in bunches of about two to three and wrap each bunch with a slice of bacon. Place all of the bunches on a foil-covered, flat pan. Put the asparagus in the oven for about 10-15 minutes or until the bacon becomes crispy. After this, take it out of the oven and sprinkle it with feta cheese (which goes well with several dishes and has several uses).

I hope you enjoy this quick and delicious snack. And the great thing about it is, you get to eat your vegetables for the day too!

If you have any questions or comments, feel free to respond.

Eat and Sleep Always,
