Roast Asparagus with Bacon Crumble

Time:  40 minutes
Effort: Easy
Serves: 4

2 bunches of green asparagus ( about 20 stalks), ends trimmed
3 slices thick bacon
1/2 cup heavy cream
Salt to taste

Heat oven to 375oF. Steam asparagus until tender but still crisp. Set aside. Cut bacon slices into small pieces and saute until golden and crisp. Lay asparagus in a neat row in a shallow oven dish, drizzle with cream and sprinkle with a little salt (not too much as the bacon is salty), then top with the bacon. Bake for approx. 20 minutes or until the cream is bubbly and browned on the edges.
