Here is a dish which combines asparagus and turkey bacon. It has a few steps, but is still easy and relatively quick to make.  It is gluten free, and low carb as well.

Ingredients:

  • Turkey Bacon 5 to 6 rashers
  • Asparagus 8 spears
  • Mature Cheddar 40 g
  • Parmesan 1 Tbs grated
  • Butter 2 tsb
  • Double Cream 2 to 3 Tbs
  • Water to steam

Method:

Remove woody bottoms from the asparagus and cut into thirds. Place the asparagus into a steamer and steam for 5 minutes. In a medium frying pan warm  the bacon, but do not fully cook. In a sauce pan melt the butter, and then melt the cheese into it, stirring constantly then slowly stir in cream. Remove bacon and cheese from the heat.  Lay out the bacon strips and place a few asparagus pieces to one side of each then roll the bacon around the veg. Gently place each roll into the bacon pan and brown on each side, avoiding unrolling each bundle. When well cooked place the wraps onto a plate. Quickly reheat the cheese sauce, enough to pour, then spoon it over the bacon wraps, and serve.
