Bacon Wrapped Asparagus


Asparagus wrapped up with Bacon in individual serving size portions. What an elegant and delicious way to present this side dish to your family and guests. A simple yet delicious side dish.






Break off the tough part of the

asparagus by holding each end and

bending the asparagus until it snaps.

Keep the stem end with the tip.

Discard the bottom stem.



Place the tip section into a colander and

thoroughly rinse with cold water.



Lay the rinsed asparagus onto

paper towels and pat dry.



Place the dry asparagus into a large bowl.



Drizzle olive oil over the asparagus.

Salt and pepper to your own taste.



Using your hands toss the asparagus so the oil,

salt and pepper gets onto all of the asparagus.



Take a serving size of asparagus

and 1-2 pieces of bacon and wrap

the bacon around the asparagus.

Try not to overlap the bacon except

at the start to hold it in place.



Place the wrapped bundles on a baking

sheet or on a slotted pan. Bake in a

preheated 400 degree oven for 30 minutes.



Turn the oven off and the broiler on.

Continue to broil until the bacon

turns a light brown then serve.

  1. You actually break the asparagus correctly and don’t cut it… So strange to see anyone else do that! I like grilling these even better, but I never turn down asparagus especially wrapped in bacon! Outstanding!

    • Yes never cut off the end. Hold on to both ends and bend and where it snaps is the part you keep. Throw away the bottom unless you want to use a peeler on the tough skin.
