Not long ago, actually a year ago, my mom discovered the next recipe and made it for me when I first gave birth to Evie. My husband and I both love it! ! I mean, love it! It was really, really good and we’ve made it several times since because it’s the perfect side dish to any meal. Here’s how you can make this delicious asparagus and mashed potato recipe from Sunny Anderson.

raw material

bacon: This dish relies on bacon’s grease. If you decide not to use bacon, you can use butter instead. I recommend making 3-4 tablespoons of butter instead of the suggested 2 tablespoons to make up for the lack of bacon grease. This way your potatoes will be nice and crispy.

Potato: We used fingerling potatoes in this recipe because they are so versatile and can be used in almost any cooking style. Note that russet potatoes are firmer and may need more TLC to get them to the correct texture. They are very starchy and need some heat to soften and lighten.

asparagus: The size does not indicate whether it is mature or not. Instead, look for sturdy stems with tight and close tops. They should not be soft, they should be bright green.

You can wash the asparagus first. Then you take a stem, bend it up and down, and it will naturally snap where needed. The broken bottom is not good, it is the chewy part and not edible. Cut the top of the asparagus at an angle and cut into 1-inch lengths.

How to Make Asparagus and Potatoes

This vegetable mix is ​​so easy to make!

In a wok over medium-high heat, add bacon and cook until crisp. Use a slotted spoon to remove it to a plate.

Add the butter to the remaining bacon fat, then add the potato chips. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Sauté until crispy on one side, then toss and cook until crispy on the other side. Add garlic and asparagus. Season lightly with salt again.

Stir constantly, until the asparagus are bright green and tender, but still crisp, about 3 minutes. Sprinkle lemon juice on top. Pour in the reserved bacon and serve hot.
