Bacon wrapped asparagus

DSC_0492sThese are ridiculously easy to prepare. And they make great side dishes. I used the skinny asparagus because I like the taste of them more than the thicker ones. I bundled about 5-6 asparagus with one strip of bacon, sprinkled with pepper (don’t worry about adding salt, the bacon has enough of it) and put it in the oven for about 12 minutes.

Bacon Wrapped Asparagus


  • Asparagus Spears (5-6 for each bundle)
  • Bacon
  • Black pepper


1) Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. To break off ends of asparagus spears, snap them and let them break naturally. Wash and pat dry. Wrap 5-6 spears with 1 slice of bacon and repeat for desired amount of bundles. Arrange on baking sheet without letting the bundles touch. Sprinkle with pepper, bake for 12 minutes or until spears are tender.
