Be Our Guest is one of the most fun and well known songs from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. The song is mainly sung by the character Lumière – a French-accented candelabra – who was voiced by Jerry Orbach in the 1991 movie, and Ewan MacGregor in the recent 2017 live-action remake. A Broadway production of the show also ran from 1994 to 2007, where the role of Lumière was originally played by Gary Beach.

As well as the enchanted candelabra, the song is also performed by a talking teapot, a mantle clock, and various other assorted animated furniture and dishes. Despite sounding like a song that The Muppets should have a stab at, only a dodgy lip-synced version exists. You’ll just have to settle for the Alvin and the Chipmunks rendition. Or The Simpson’s parody “See My Vest“. Or the Ant and Dec version with a talking cookie. OK I’ll stop now.
This asparagus recipe is SUPER quick and easy, especially if you have the bacon already cooked. I even use a microwave vegetable steamer to make things even speedier!
Steam the asparagus until just tender (mine were super skinny so only took 3 minutes on high). Meanwhile, finely chop the cooked bacon. Transfer the asparagus to a serving plate, and sprinkle over the bacon and some blue cheese crumbles. Drizzle some olive oil over the vegetables and season with black pepper (you shouldn’t need any salt). All done in less than five minutes!
