Bacon makes the World Go Round…Bacon Wrapped Asparagus

“Everyone is entitled to an opinion, except those who do not like bacon.”

FullSizeRender_1Now let’s be real… bacon just makes everything taste better!  And if you don’t like bacon, well you must have something mentally wrong with you.  I mean come on it’s sooo f*cking delicious!  I have learned that if you don’t like something there’s a good chance you wrap bacon around it or add bacon to it, you will probably learn to love it!  Now I’m not saying that I don’t like asparagus cause I do, but man is it on steroids when you wrap it up in some bacon.  Now obviously, we don’t have mounds of bacon at every meal, but occasionally you just gotta have it!  So I definitely recommend giving these bad boys a try! :D

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes in oven; 15 minutes grill

Ingredients:

  • One bunch of asparagus
  • one package of bacon
  • balsamic vinegar
  • sprinkle of salt
  • sprinkle of pepper
  • sprinkle of roasted garlic (love this on everything – can be found at Penzeys)

FullSizeRenderDirections: Preheat your oven to 400 or start your grill.  It’s pretty simple… Wash your asparagus, break off those pesky ends.  Take two or three pieces of asparagus and one piece of bacon and wrap around the base up to the top of the asparagus.  Pretty simple right?  When you’re done I put it on a cooking sheet with tinfoil and dose with balsamic vinegar.  Then sprinkle the seasoning over it.  Then place it in the oven for 25ish minutes (flip over half way through) or place it on the grill for 10-15 minutes til crispy.  Either way you’re going to love it!  Enjoy! :)
