Easy Bacon Wrapped Asparagus

There’s actually a lot of versions of Bacon Wrapped Asparagus out there, but mine is slightly different.  Most people bunch several asparagus together and then wrap it together with bacon, but when I’m serving it to guests, I like to make mine a little fancier, and wrap it in singles!  The trick is NOT to wrap an entire bacon around the asparagus but to cut it… otherwise you will end up eating WAY too much bacon… not saying you can’t do that… but you might not want to 😉

Not all bacon is made the same! If you are looking for healthier bacon, definitely go for nitrate free. For more info on the best vs worst bacon, check out this article.

0. Preheat oven to 400° F.
1. Trim off the hard stem areas of the asparagus. This is usually the bottom 1-2 inches of the asparagus.
2. Cut up bacon in to 3 length wise. I use a pair of kitchen shears.
3. Stretch and wrap the bacon from one end to the other.
4. Place bacon wrapped asparagus on aluminum foil on a baking sheet.

6. Take out asparagus and flip it over, bake for another 10 minutes or until bacon is done.
