Bacon Wrapped Asparagus
Fresh asparagus stalks wrapped in bacon and baked until the bacon is crispy.
- 1 bunch fresh Asparagus
- 12 oz. pkg bacon regular thickness
Preheat the oven to 500F. Cut about an inch off the bottom or stump end of the stalks. Thoroughly rinse the asparagus under cold running water. Shake the water off.
Cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Wrap a slice of bacon around each stalk, spiraling from on end to the other and spread them out on the sheet. If all you could find at the store were skinny stalks just wrap 2 or 3 of them with a slice of bacon. Put the sheet on a middle or upper rack in the oven. Lower rack will char the bottom of the bacon but they still all would get eaten! Bake at 500 for about 10 minutes or until the bacon is done the way YOU want it. Enjoy!
