Do you like bacon?

I think many of you like crispy bacon for breakfast, or you may have other favorite bacon recipe.

Of course I like bacon, and it is very convenient ingredient when I cook spaghetti. Bacon always gets along well with other materials, doesn’t it?

Also I believe it is popular to use bacon for wrapping every materials such as vegetable.
Actually, asparagus rolled with bacon is popular dish in Japan.

When I pick up asparagus at the grocery store, the recipe for “ASPARAGUS & BACON miso soup” came into my head.

I’ve never used bacon and asparagus for miso soup, but I expect they will do good job!
