Default asparagus recipes?

I need some. The garden is making enough for a meal every 2 days. I'm a big fan of grilling them, I just can't fire the grill up all the time. I tried sauteing them in butter and garlic the other day because everything is good sauteed in butter, except asparagus apparently. Recipes need to be carb and sugar free please. Thanks.

We make a sauce with butter and brown sugar (melt on stove). Wrap asparagus in bacon, cover in sauce and back for 20-30mins.

Just sautéed in a lightly oiled pan with salt/pepper. Little bit of lemon or butter before serving if you'd like.

Put foil on a cookie sheet. Put asparagus on the cookie sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and put shredded parmesan cheese on top and bake in the oven until done to your likeness.

My wife just cut some up and put it in some pasta salad with rabbit... it was good. Too bad you don't like carbs.

I put asparagus in a couple gallon sized bags with olive oil, fresh minced garlic (lots), and your favorite all season. Sometimes I add a little balsamic vinaigrette. Then roll around in bag to generously coat all sides of asparagi in oil/seasoning. I either grill or do the foil on cookie sheet in oven method that SwampRabbit described.

It'll make you slap ur mama...

Toss in a bowl with a little olive oil, sea salt and pepper. Then bacon wrap. Usually 3 pieces wrapped is perfect. Either grill or bake

Gallon bag with olive oil, garlic, black pepper, and balsamic vinegar. Then grill or bake. The longer you let them marinate the better!

Steamed with holandaise sauce (the only way I like asparagus that's mushy)

Wrap the stalks in prosciutto, hit em with some olive oil and pepper and grill or bake.

We also like to batter and deep fry them, but that isn't diet friendly.

steam them till done then set them aside, drain the water out of the pan and then put butter, garlic, capers and a little heavy cream and salt/pepper to make a sauce to pour over the asparagus.

even my kids will eat it.

Agree with some of the other posts. We love ours oven roasted. Spray with olive oil, throw some minced garlic and kosher salt on top and roast for about 15-20 mins at 425, turning halfway through. Love grilling them the same way, but firing up the grill isn't always practical, especially for a quick dinner.

Have you seen the movie "Elf"? A line in the movie when they are trying to come up with a title for a children's book goes like this;

"Let write about a tribe of Asparagus children that are self conscious about the way their pee smells."

Thats pretty dang funny right there.

I can get one, but it just looks like stalks of asparagus sticking out of the ground. They say it takes 2-3 years before they get big enough to start harvesting. I planted 2 year old crowns that I bought off of the internet last spring and most of mine are producing eatable stalks, some are still too small.

Wrapped in bacon and baked some last night. Finished them under the broiler. Easy meal.

I like that salmon and hollandaise sauce idea, might have to try that.
