Gluten Free Bacon & Asparagus Slice

Asparagus and bacon gluten free slice

The school holidays are over and it’s back to teaching and reality for me this week! That means getting organised in the food department again, so here’s a new recipe to start the term with.

My Bacon & Asparagus Slice has been a life saver at morning tea; high protein, low carb it kept the hunger at bay so I haven’t been craving sugar at lunch time!

I made it on Sunday and it kept for a week in the fridge, it was popular with my teen boys, (although I was stingy this week and didn’t share much)!!
