The magical combination of asparagus and bacon…so easy and SO good!

Bacon Wrapped Asparagus

  • 2 pounds asparagus (thin stalks are better for this recipe)
  • 1 pound bacon, not thick cut
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  1. Cut woody stems from asparagus.
  2. In a large bowl, toss the asparagus with olive oil. Sprinkle with kosher salt and pepper and toss again.
  3. Lay 3 asparagus stalks on a cutting board. Take one slice of bacon and wrap around the stalks. Try to keep the stalks flat as you’re wrapping them with bacon (think of it like a raft). Tuck the ends of bacon inside, so they cannot come loose on the grill.
  4. Preheat grill to medium-low.
  5. Grill asparagus for 4 minutes with the lid closed. Turn over and grill for 4 more minutes. Turn asparagus again and cook for 4 more minutes.
  6. Serve immediately.
