Asparagus Wrapped In Bacon

Recently a local store here had asparagus on sale for $1.99 a lb. plus there was an in-ad coupon for $1.00 off making it only $1.00 per lb. I couldn’t pass it up!

This is a really simple way to cook asparagus, and while I know that bacon is not healthy…it is sooooo good. I don’t usually eat my asparagus this way (I prefer it stir fried) but for a special meal it is a lovely treat. My kids were all over this!

There are just two ingredients…

  • Asparagus
  • Bacon

Nothing else needed.

First step is to pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees F.

Then take your asparagus and wash and dry it and trim off any dried ends that it may have.

Take a strip of bacon and slice it down the middle lengthwise.

Then you simply twirl one of the slices of bacon around a spear of asparagus.

Then place on a lined rimmed cookie sheet (I used my Silpat non-stick cooking mat, but you could use foil or parchment paper – it just aids in clean up).

(My kids said they looked like bacon and asparagus candy canes!

Then bake for 30-45 minutes until the bacon is as crisp as you like it.

Then serve as a side dish to your favorite meal. We had some homemade chicken strips  with ours – YUM!
