Bacon-Wrapped Asparagus

The maple bacon paired up with cracked black pepper and sea salt makes this sweet and savory dish a winner in my book! A side that looks fancy, but is soooo easy. Enjoy roasted in the oven {as shown} or grilled! 

Trim the bottoms of your asparagus so they are even with one another {about 1-2 inches} and rinse. Bundle 5-6 together, wrap tightly with one piece of uncooked maple bacon -seal with a toothpick.

Line up bundles in a foiled lined 9×13 baking pan {I would steer away from a cookie sheet because the bacon juices will run off}. 

Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with black pepper and sea salt. Roast in a 400 oven for 15 mins {turning in between} until browned. If you would prefer, you can grill 5 mins on each side until bacon is cooked and crispy.

  1. Looks wonderful! Thanks

  2. Looks delicious! I’ve had prosciutto wrapped asparagus before and it was pretty good. I think I would like bacon much better though!

    This is a family favorite, but we cook it on the griddle.

  4. Yummy, perfect for a low carb diet.

  5. Tried this tonight & loved it! When I asked my hubby whether he liked it, he didn’t even stop eating long enough to answer me! He just nodded, smiled & said a big “mhmmm!”.
    Thanks Janelle! :-)

    My question might be stupid :) ! But are the asparagus already cooked (like canned asparagus) or are they fresh raw asparagus ? Thanks for your answer
