Bacon makes everything better, including asparagus! This recipe is an easy way to make a party classic – bacon wrapped asparagus – in your oven. You can also make this recipe on the grill, just make sure to cook the bacon over indirect heat instead directly over the flames. Enjoy!
- 1 lb Asparagus (trimmed to an even length)
- Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- Black Pepper
- Kosher Salt
- 4 slice LGCM Bacon (we recommend using thick cut for this recipe)
Lightly coat the asparagus in extra virgin olive oil, and gently season with salt and pepper. Divide the asparagus into 4 even bunches. Wrap a slice of bacon around each bundle to secure it. We recommend wrapping on a diagonal with the bacon slightly overlapping itself on each wrap for best results.
Place the bundles on a oven rack over a foil lined baking sheet and put into an oven preheated to 400ºF. Cook for about 10 minutes, until the bacon is crispy, and the asparagus is tender. Remove and serve. Enjoy!
