Disneyland is by far our family’s favorite spot to vacation because it’s place we all enjoy! The hubby and I feel like all our cares melt away when we’re there and we can focus on just enjoying our family and having fun together. Disneyland truly is magical!! Today, I’m sharing a copycat recipe from one of our favorite spots at Disney – Bengal Barbecue. It’s right across the way from the Indiana Jones ride, and is our favorite spot to grab some delicious skewers, particularly the Bacon Wrapped Asparagus Skewers.

If you have never been to Bengal Barbecue, I highly suggest stopping by next time you’re about to board the Jungle Cruise. They have a variety of skewers, and all are amazing. We love the bacon and asparagus version because it’s a light snack and one we can have between meals at the park. We love them so much, we had to try a version at home, and I’m so glad we did because this recipe tastes just like it!!ย Just 4 ingredients are needed for these babies, so give them a go! We think you’ll love them just as much as we do.

How to make Bacon Wrapped Asparagus:

Making this asparagus is so easy! It only takes about 10 minutes to prep and the rest is the grilling part! Not bad for such a delicious recipe.

Begin by wrapping 1/3 part bacon around each piece of asparagus and sprinkle with a bit of olive oil and Parmesan cheese. From there you will add about 5 pieces of asparagus to each skewer. Then grill until the bacon is cooked! Easy peasy. ๐Ÿ˜‰

We placed these on the grill with the bottoms of the skewers out so we could easily rotate them.

DELICIOUS-NESS!!

My mouth is watering just looking at these guys!! They were seriously so tasty! They were so easy to make and didn’t take long at all. We ended up cooking ours on the grill for about 8 minutes, but time may differ depending on your grill. I think this means we have another Copycat Disneyland recipe in the books!!

    I love all your Disney recipes! You’ve picked my personal favorites.

    LOVED YOUR TYPO! I know it was unintentional but:
    Cut your back in thirds.
    That’s what I call giving your all for your food!
    Thank you for a great blog full of wonderful ideas and yummy eats!

    These are my FAVORITE! We just made some over the weekend and I bet the parmesan cheese makes them that much better!

    Crystal

    Delicious!! Looks amazing! Thanks for the recipe!!

    These look delish, Kristyn!! These would make a great addition to a summer party spread!

      Lil' Luna

      Thanks, Kristi!! They seriously were SO good – we’ll probably try them again on Memorial Day. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Ashley

    I don’t know how you did this! I just tried and my barbecue was a giant ball of flame due to all the bacon grease. YIKES! I will try again, but using a grill pan or roasting them in the oven. The ones that weren’t completely black tasted pretty good, I guess I’ll just have to go back to disneyland to get them just right ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Lil' Luna

      So sorry you had issues, Ashley. We had the BBQ turned on low and didn’t have any issues at all. I guess a trip back to DL wouldn’t be too bad, though. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Tammy

    We love these! We actually do them inside as well. We trim the asparagus then leave them long. I wrap 3-5 stalks (depending on thickness) with one full piece of bacon. Place all in a 9×13, drizzle with a little olive oil, Parmesan & garlic. Cover & cook at 375 for appx 45 min, then uncover and cook until bacon is cooked throughout. This is one of my family’s absolute favorite side dishes!

      Lil' Luna

      I will totally have to give this a try!! Sounds super easy. We LOVE Asparagus… and bacon, of course. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Chau

    It looks amazing and doesn’t seem really hard. Thank you for sharing ๐Ÿ™‚

    Katherine

    I think I can safely say that this would be my husband’s favorite way to eat asparagus!
