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.

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!
Thank you! I grow asparagus and get so much of it in the spring. These were from the store and SO thin. I can’t wait for my own.
I’m going to plant them this year for the first time, so it will be a couple years for me. So yummy!
It is a great combination of flavor…thank you!
I sometimes make these with prosciutto instead of bacon. Also a favourite of mine 😊
I love prosciutto! Great idea! 💖
Yes me too. Almost as good as Danish bacon 😊
Yummy! I have both ingredients to hand so will try this tonight. Do you recommend anything in particular to serve it with?
This would be great with any meat like chicken, steak etc. I even make a meal out of them…lol Enjoy I know I did. 😃
UHmm…Uhmmm, my mouth’s full! Lol!
Thanks I can’t wait to pick asparagus from my garden. These were so thin.
Wow lucky you! 🙂
Yum – love both. Will have to try this.
They were so good I ate two bundles! Thank you!
Keep sharing. I hope you will check my latest recipe very soon. Today we are publishing our 100th blog post. https://amazingshining.com/sugar-free-kesari-shrikhand-indian-dessert-recipe/
Thank you! Congratulations!
Wow.. Looks amazing!❤️❤️
You had me at bacon!
I used an entire pound of bacon! 😂🤣😂🤣
I have made bacon wraped aspargus. Love the flavor combination.
This was my first time trying it and I will definitely be doing it again!
I have never been able to cook asparagus. Never. I’ll eat it at restaurants etc.
I think I just might try cooking it one more time using this recipe. 🙂
The secret is not to overcook it or it gets soggy. This recipe will help because it is inside the bacon so it will still have a slight firmness but is cooked.
This looks so yummy. I didn’t know that was the right way to cut asparagus. I will definitely try it myself next time I cook it.
well presented !
Wonderful presentation! 💕
Why thank you so much Bernice! That really means a lot to me!
Your welcome! 💕
Anything bacon related lol! 👍🏻
I use asparagus for flower arrangements. But this is a great idea. I don’t know which type of asparagus is to be used.
I wish I knew what type this is. I honestly didn’t know there were other types. We only have one type at the grocery store and it is the same type in my garden. I have never heard of putting them in flower arrangements how fascinating!
Please check next days post of flower arrangements you will find it to be lovely!
I’d love to but when I click your link it says no longer available.
May be some problem in website!
I’ll try again!
Yay! Great idea to use my asparagus which should be coming in soon!
I still need to clean my asparagus beds out! Hopefully this weekend before they start popping up.
Hope the weather holds out for you!
Thanks for sharing!
Your recipes are just great!
Aw thanks Dan!
A great addition to our Finger Food Friday’s. I sometimes grill asparagus but wrapped in bacon – now that’ll be really special.
This can be put on the grill as well.
I’ll bet the grandkids love this and hopefully they don’t unwrap the bacon and leave the asparagus, 🙂
They weren’t here for this one…..all ours! 🤣😂
You snooze, you lose. 🙂
We made these for our wedding – huge hit.
How awesome is that! So elegant!
Thank you Jack!
Mmmm this has got to be one of my fave side dishes, ever ♡ yum!
I agree I can make a meal out of them!
“Break off the tough part of the asparagus ” I had no clue!! Can’t wait to try this your way 🙂
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.
