Bacon Wrapped Asparagus is the perfect side dish at dinnertime. Great for lunch or meal prepping as well. They’re full of flavour and only 20 minutes to make!
Let’s just talk about vegetables for a minute. What is your favourite veggie? Growing up I was never one to like asparagus and I think it was because of it’s thickness and hard-to-chew consistency. No offence mom (the best cook I know), but I now enjoy them with my kind of seasoning, and baked instead of boiled.
The flavours go a long way, oh and the bacon helps too.
What’s great about this dish is that it can be your main dish breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Having guests over? Serve bacon wrapped asparagus on a platter as an appetizer. Everyone will undoubtably grab a bundle to munch on.
I used groups of four asparagus, as seen in the photos, but you can wrap each one individually and make it a snack.
Serve with rice, seafood, potatoes, quinoa, or whatever your little heart desires. You’re going to love how tasty this asparagus is and how quick it is to make. In 20 minutes, no draining required, you will have not-soggy but crispy bacon wrapped goodness!
Similarly to my sweet potato kielbasa skillet where I use uncured meat, this recipe quires bacon with no sugar added. Look for meat with no antibiotics, growth hormones, and fed no animal by-products. To find bacon that has little or no sugar, go to your local butcher or whole foods store and buy organic.
