Our Baked Asparagus with Bacon and Parmesan Cheese recipe is a quick and easy low-carb side dish that goes well with any meat or entree, any time of year! Healthy, gluten-free, and low-carb, this recipe is a winner! You can’t go wrong with tender asparagus topped with crunchy bacon and Parmesan cheese! It’s one of my kids’ favorite vegetable side dishes – we usually make it a few times a month.
This recipe is so easy to make that you can easily prepare for weeknight meals. To make it quicker, you can prepare the bacon in the oven at the same time as the asparagus and just top the asparagus after it is cooked – or cook the bacon ahead in the oven and refrigerate until ready to use (lasts 3 days in fridge after cooked). Baking bacon in the oven is a life hack that I discovered several years ago and have never gone back, it saves so much time!
The best cheese I’ve found for this recipe The Cheese Guy’s 2 Year Aged Parmesan Cheese! It is a wonderfully hard cheese that has a slightly sweet and nutty flavor.
We like to serve with a protein like steak or chicken breast and a side salad for a complete meal. Check outf my other low-carb recipes for dinner!
