So I have been planning out my Easter menu and I asked my son Kayden what vegetable I should serve with Easter dinner and he instantly said roasted asparagus. It is something several of us in the family just love. Since I am trying to make my dishes just a little bit more special for Easter I thought it would be fun to add a bit more to the asparagus. I often will sprinkle on cheese and bacon pieces when I have it. Then it hit me that the Cheddar Jack with Bacon Kraft Fresh Take (my families favorite flavor) would really go nicely on the asparagus.
We often use the #FreshTake kits with our meats and I had just never before thought to use it on a vegetable. So while I was at Walmart doing my regular grocery shopping I grabbed the Cheddar Jack with Bacon variety and some asparagus. During the month of April Walmart has a printable coupon for $1 off chicken when you buy Fresh Take. I wanted to do a test run with this recipe before Easter to make sure it tasted as good as I imagined. This is one of those recipes that is so easy to make, yet so delicious – and we just love delicious vegetables around here!
Cheddar Bacon Roasted Asparagus with Kraft Fresh Take
- 1 bunch Asparagus
- Olive Oil
- Cheddar Jack with Bacon Kraft Fresh Take kit
Let’s Get Cooking!
After you preheat your oven to 425 degrees you will want to wash and dry your asparagus.
Snap off the ends of the asparagus – my favorite part – and place the asparagus on a parchment lined baking sheet. Drizzle olive oil over the asparagus and then toss the asparagus until they are all coated with the olive oil. At this point I also sprinkle with pepper. You will not need to add salt as the Fresh Take kit has a saltiness to it.
Originally I thought I could put the asparagus in the baggie with the Fresh Take kit and it would coat it but that did not work. So instead I generously sprinkled the coating over the asparagus.
Roast in the oven for 10 minutes – if your asparagus is really thick you may need to roast a little longer. Remove from the oven and breathe in that heavenly smell in, sneak a piece to eat and then place the rest on a pretty plate for your Easter dinner.
I think this will go great with the ham, potatoes, corn and stuffing that I have planned for our Easter dinner.
I really love how these turned out – they turned out as yummy as I imagined! What vegetables do you serve with your Easter dinner? I would love to hear what you do to kick them up a notch!
