Bacon Wrapped Asparagus Recipe
Bacon Wrapped Asparagus is a smoky and savory side dish. It is crispy, delicious, and takes about 20 minutes to prepare!
- 1 1/2 lbs asparagus spears trimmed to a length of 4-5 inches
- extra virgin olive oil for drizzling
- black pepper
- 4 slices center cut bacon
- chopped chives or scallions optional garnish
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Lightly coat asparagus spears in extra-virgin olive oil. Season the asparagus with black pepper.
Take a quick count of the spear tips. Divide the total number by four. Gather that number of spears and use a slice of bacon to wrap the bundle and secure the spears together with a toothpick.
Repeat with remaining ingredients.
Place bundles on a slotted broiler pan or wire rack on a baking sheet. Bake for 12 minutes.
