Serves 3-5 with a nice side salad


  • 1 -½ pounds Yellow Potatoes (equal to about 11-12 US NO 1 Size B)
  • 1 (8-ounce) package uncured bacon
  • 1 (8-ounce) package asparagus spears
  • 1 cup Vermont shredded cheddar
  • Spray olive oil

Step 2:


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Use a zip and steam bag to cook potatoes.
  3. Spray an 11 x 17 cookie sheet with olive oil spray.
  4. Place cooked potatoes on tray and smash each one using a paper towel and your hand. Spray tops of potatoes and set aside.
  5. Cook bacon according to package instructions. Let cool a few minutes and chop. Set aside.
  6. Peel off the bottoms of the asparagus spears. This makes the ends tender. Take half of the asparagus spears and chop. Sprinkle on potatoes. They will fall off in some places. Place the other half of the asparagus spears on the cookie sheet in random spots.

    Hi! Uncured bacon is bacon that has not been processed with any additional nitrties or nitrates. It has less preservatives than average bacon! Taste delicious!

    Great question! The solution used to make uncured bacon does not include artificial nitrates. They use a celery juice or extract which is high in natural nitrates. They might even use sea salt that is high in natural nitrates.
