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 aka Safari 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 these skwewers so much, we had to try a version at home, and I’m so glad we did because this recipe tastes just like it!! 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 it

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. ๐Ÿ˜‰

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!

Grilling Tips

A few more things to keep in mind when grilling.

  • Soak the wooden skewers in water for 10-15 minutes before adding the wrapped asparagus. This helps keep the skewers from burning.
  • Use thin cut bacon. Aside from taking longer to cook thick bacon can easily burn before itโ€™s done and the asparagus gets overcooked.ย 

Alternative cooking: If you don’t want to fire up the grill you can use the oven or a griddle.

  • Oven: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Place the skewers on a pan lined with parchment paper. Cook for 8-10 minutes per side, or until the bacon is cooked through. To crisp up the bacon, place them under the broiler for about 30 seconds per side. Be careful that they don’t burn.ย 
  • Griddle: Heat your electric griddle to about 350 degrees F. Place skewers on the griddle and cook until bacon is crisp on both sides. Be cautious of the oil splatters.ย

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

More Tips

Make ahead: You can easily prepare this dish the day before. Cover the plate of skewered asparagus with plastic wrap or foil and keep in the fridge.

Storage: Leftover asparagus should be placed in an airtight container in the fridge. Reheat under the broiler in the oven.

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!!

  1. I couldn’t help but stop when I saw you had a copy cat recipe from Bengal Barbecue! I love that place! And now I see you have more copy cat recipes from Disneyland! I have to check them out ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. 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!

  3. 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˜‰

    1. 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˜‰

  4. 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!

    What could be better than these? Nothing!! I love asparagus & bacon, but never thought to combine the two! They were incredible!!

  6. 5 stars
    Love your recipes but do wonder if the amount of flour differs when using Canadian flour as it is a different consistency than the flour in U.S?

  7. 5 stars
    These are a must when we go to Disneyland! Oh, they are so good! SO excited to make these & surprise my family!
