Chef Becky’s Bacon Wrapped Asparagus for your Grill

19 Apr Chef Becky’s Bacon Wrapped Asparagus for your Grill

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.
