Ingredients

  • 6 spears asparagus
  • 2 slices bacon
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 3/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup corn grits (coarse)
  • 1/4 cup extra sharp cheddar cheese
  • salt
  • pepper
  • asparagus
  • cheddar cheese
  • bacon
  • polenta

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°. Wrap 6 thick asparagus spears with two slices of raw bacon.
  2. Place on a small baking sheet and spritz the bundle with nonstick cooking spray, just to coat the asparagus lightly. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  3. Roast for 15-20 minutes, or until the bacon is crispy and the asparagus is tender.
  4. Make the cheddar polenta while the asparagus is roasting: Bring chicken broth to a boil in a small saucepan.
  5. Stir in polenta.Lower the heat and cook slowly for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally until the mixture has thickened.
  6. Stir in the cheese. I used extra sharp cheddar, but any kind would work. Add a dash of salt and pepper, or more to taste.
  7. Scoop the polenta in a dish and top with the bacon wrapped asparagus.
