Asparagus spears are wrapped with bacon then baked until tender crisp.

  • Servings: 8

Ingredients:

1 lb Asparagus
1 lb Bacon
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
Salt & Black Pepper, to taste

Directions:

Rinse the asparagus and cut the ends. Brush with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Wrap asparagus with one strip of bacon each, place on baking sheet, and cover with foil. Cook for 15 minutes at 450 degrees. Remove the foil after 8 minutes and turn the asparagus to cook on both sides.

Helpful Tips:

Asparagus will be tender-crisp, but bacon should be cooked through; cook for up to an additional 5-20 minutes to crisp the bacon if necessary.
