When I was a kid my sister and I LOVED when my mom made these. We would always argue about the order the ingredients should go on the toast. (Of course, I'm submitting this in the order I liked.) It was also a good way to get us to eat asparagus.

  3. Place a few spears of asparagus on a slice of bread. Top with 2 slices crisp bacon then a slice of cheese.

my roommate is extremely nutrition conscious so this was a great recipe that i could make for her.

This was really good! However, after reading reviews I decided to use fresh, cooked asparagus rather than canned. I can't imagine this tasting good with canned asparagus.

For someone who never seems to have enough time to eat, let alone cook, I have to say this is a great recipe. It's quick, it's delicious, and I had all the ingredients just laying around. I did add artichoke and parmesan as well, and I used a tiny bit of mayonnaise because the sandwich looked a little dry. As it turns out, it really wasn't as dry as it looked, but the mayo was a good addition.
