Veggie Side/Garlic Cheese Biscuits

By Amy Story Larson

Biker Chuck’s Yummy Veggie Side

INGREDIENTS

One bundle tender baby asparagus, cut to one-inch lengths

4-5 strips bacon, crumbled

One small onion, diced

Honey to taste

Red pepper flakes to taste

Optional: a sprinkling of feta cheese or Parmesan

PREPARATION

> Sauté asparagus in a well-buttered pan for 2-3 minutes, then add diced onions and continue cooking.

> Once asparagus and onions are tender and slightly browned, add in crumbled bacon and stir. Then add a teaspoon or more of honey, according to taste, should be just slightly sweet.

> Sprinkle in a bit of crushed pepper flakes to increase heat.

This combination of savory, sweet, and “umami” (considered a fifth basic taste associated with high-protein foods) works well on the palate, making good friends with each other.

Note: We met “Biker Chuck” at a coffee shop one day. The man was a tremendous foodie, liked binging on Netflix series, loved the people he went on long motorcycle rides with, and was willing to share his secrets. He told us about this little combo and we couldn’t wait to try it. I give it two thumbs and forks way up.
