Bacon Asparagus Tarts Recipe – Perfect for Spring!

Bacon Asparagus Tarts - These pretty springtime tarts are easy-to-make starting with pre-made tart shells. Perfect for Easter, a Mother's Day brunch, a bridal shower or any spring day.

When it comes to springtime veggies, what is the first thing that pops into your head? For me it’s asparagus! I have to admit that asparagus is one of those things that I HATED as a kid, but grew to love as an adult. I think the thing that turned the corner is when my mom starting cooking it wrapped in a thing slice of prosciutto – so good! I think that little touch of salty pork really complemented the flavor of the asparagus and that’s exactly what happens with the addition of bacon in this yummy Bacon Asparagus Tarts recipe!

 

 

While these springtime tarts look “fancy” and like they took you forever to make, they are actually pretty simple to whip up, especially when you start with pre-made tart shells. They are perfect to serve for Easter, a Mother’s Day brunch, a bridal shower or any spring occasion.

12 tart shells, thawed
½ c milk
½ c cream
3 eggs, beaten
½ c asparagus, cut into small pieces
3 – 4 pcs bacon, diced

Carefully transfer the baking sheet into the oven and let cook for approximately 15 – 18 minutes or until the egg is thoroughly cooked and the tops are golden brown.

Let cool before serving. Enjoy!
