Bacon Wrapped Asparagus
Author: 
 
Ingredients
  • 14 thick asparagus spears, about 1 lb.
  • 7 strips of good quality bacon
  • salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prepare asparagus: break off tough ends by snapping 1-2 inches from bottom. Peel bottom portion of asparagus spears if desired.
  2. Prepare bacon: cut all bacon strips in half length-wise. You should end up with 14 long, thin strips of bacon.
  3. Starting just under the tender tips, wrap the bacon in a spiral motion down the asparagus. Overlap the first bit of bacon to create a tighter wrap.
  4. Place spears, seam side down if possible, on a rimmed baking pan. Roast at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until bacon is cooked to desired crispness. Season with black pepper and salt if using a lower sodium bacon.
