Bacon-wrapped Asparagus

This is the most-requested side dish at my house. It’s very easy to make and makes your side vegetable a little more appetizing, because bacon.

I love bacon, and I love asparagus. Nothing makes me happier than to wrap my marinated asparagus in bacon! I also tried these with wrapping an individual spear with an individual slice of bacon, but in reality that was way too much meat t to vegetable ratio.

Bacon-wrapped Asparagus

  • 1 bunch asparagus
  • 1 package uncured bacon (no sugar added)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt & pepper to taste
  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Clean and trim ends of the asparagus
  3. In a large ziplock bag, add asparagus spears, olive oil and garlic
  4. Seal and shake up bag to coat the spears evenly
  5. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or tinfoil, place a baking rack on top
  6. Wrap one slice of bacon around 4-5 asparagus spears, place on baking rack
  7. Repeat until all spears are wrapped, put away any extra bacon
  8. Cook in oven for 10 minutes at 400, then 3 minutes on broil (for crispy bacon); otherwise just 15 minutes at 400 is fine
  9. Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes before serving
