THE BEST BACON WRAPPED ASPARAGUS

A wise man once said, "If you want to make something delicious, wrap it in bacon." Ok, maybe I just made that up right now, but I think it's pretty darn true.

I mean, asparagus roasted in the oven is a tasty vegetable, right?!

Buuuut, asparagus wrapped in bacon baked in the oven is next-level good. The asparagus and bacon both get crisp up to perfection and combined to create a flavor like no other.

And all you need to make it is literally just the bacon and asparagus, plus a little salt and pepper.

Plus, this fancy-looking appetizer could not be easier to make and takes under 30 minutes from start to finish!

And if you want to make it even quicker, you can crisp up this bacon asparagus in the air fryer and save yourself some time - more on that in a bit.

Anyway, the next time you need an appetizer, side dish, or even snack, you have to try this recipe. It's seriously the perfect little bite to nibble on.

INGREDIENTS

Ok, so I already mentioned the ingredients you'll need, but here is how much of each one we'll be using:

  • 10 oz asparagus
  • 12 bacon slices
  • Salt and pepper

Now, this will make about 4 servings, so if you are planning to serve this for a party or want to make more, just double, triple, or even quadruple the recipe! 

And don't be afraid to get extra bacon - you can use it to make these jalapeno poppers as another delicious appetizer or this low carb quiche for a restaurant-worthy breakfast.

HOW TO MAKE BACON WRAPPED ASPARAGUS 

You honestly won't find something easier to make than this bacon wrapped asparagus recipe. Basically all you have to do is wrap bacon around asparagus and cook - it's as simple as that.

And you have some flexibility with how you assemble your spears - so you can tailor this recipe for any occasion. 

So, if you're ready to elevate the flavor of some healthy asparagus, let's get to it.

STEP 1: ASSEMBLING

First things first preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (205°C).

Then wash the asparagus and trim the ends off. 

Next, you can either wrap a bundle of 3-4 asparagus spears with a piece of bacon or wrap each spear of asparagus individually - it's totally up to you.

That said, if you are wrapping bundles of asparagus, use one slice of bacon per bundle. And if you are wrapping individual spears, cut the bacon slices lengthwise to make narrower strips.

Either way, wrap the asparagus tightly and place them seam side down on a baking tray coated with baking spray.

STEP 2: BAKING

Before putting the baking tray in the oven, sprinkle the bacon asparagus with a little salt and pepper.

Then put it in the oven and bake for 10 minutes. When the time is up, use tongs to turn the spears over, and bake for 10 more minutes or until the bacon is as crispy as you want.

Lastly, serve the asparagus wrapped bacon, and enjoy!

MAKING AIR FRY BACON WRAPPED ASPARAGUS 

For a quicker cooking method, try making air fryer bacon wrapped asparagus.

Just preheat your air fryer to 400°F, wrap your asparagus, spray the air fryer basket with baking spray, and then place as many bundles as you can so they're lying flat on the basket surface.

Fry for about 5 minutes, then flip and fry for another 5 minutes or until the bacon is nice and crispy.

By the way, you may need to cook these in batches since you won't want to overcrowd the basket! 

STORING ANY LEFTOVERS

If you're serving this at a party or for dinner, it's hard to believe you'll have any leftovers.

But if you do, you can store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.

Then to reheat, put the bacon wrapped asparagus back in the oven for a few minutes until warm.
