Recipe by MikeAndKim
"Mike came up with this recipe during the first dinner we cooked together in our brand-new apartment! We were inspired by a similar dish we've had at an Italian restaurant, but used it as a side dish instead of an antipasti plate, and substituted the prosciutto with bacon. The cheese, a relatively mild cow's milk cheese, should be relatively easy to find because of its increasing popularity. Super easy to make, and super tasty!"

garlic, thinly sliced
fresh asparagus, trimmed
grape tomatoes, halved
hardwood smoked bacon
Taleggio cheese, cut into 1/4-inch pieces
Robust, diverse flavor with a nice tangy finish. I've made it twice already in two days and will make it again soon!
Havarti cheese works as well with some basil sprinkled on top.
I prepared ahead of time to take to deer camp. Cooked them in foil. Probably should have opened the foil to allow the bacon to crisp up a bit, but had limited space. Had great flavor and the presentation was beautiful.
Didn't turn out -- bacon didnt get crisp quick enough -- i overdid the asparagus, cheese, and tomatoes. I had doubled the recipe, so maybe that's part of what went wrong... but it really didn't turn
