Ingredients

  • 1/2 lb Bacon cut into 1/4" bits
  • 3 cups Red or White Potatoes diced into 1/4" - 1/2" cubes
  • 1/2 bundle Skinny Asparagus
  • Sea Salt to taste
  • Ground Black Pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Snap the ends off the asparagus and discard, then cut into 1" pieces. Set aside.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. I prefer to use my CastLite pan, but a regular cast iron pan would be great.
  • Add the bacon pieces and cook until crispy, then remove with a slotted spoon to bowl and set aside. Leave the grease in the pan.
  • In the same skillet, add the diced potatoes. Reduce heat to medium. Stir to coat all the potatoes with the bacon fat. Let the potatoes sit for a few minutes, season with salt and pepper, and then stir. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are about 75% done.
  • Add the asparagus to the skillet and stir to combine with the potatoes. Continue cooking until potatoes are soft and asparagus is done (about 5-10 minutes).
  • Remove from heat and stir in the reserved bacon bits. Taste and add more salt and pepper, if desired. Serve hot.
  • This dish reheats great in a skillet and is actually best if you make it a day in advance (though it's not required).
