Bacon Wrapped Asparagus

Bacon Wrapped Asparagus
Bacon and asparagus: What's not to like?
Guaranteed to be a smash hit with just about everyone (sorry, vegans), this has got to be one of the simplest recipes EVER. You'll want to make these for your next party, brunch, dinner - whatever occasion you have on your social calendar.

One suggestion: make at least twice as many as you think you'll need. These crisp & delicious bits of cured pork & tender asparagus will go faster than hotcakes at the county fair!

16 - 20 slender spears of fresh Michigan asparagus
8 to 10 strips country-style bacon



Wash and trim asparagus spears. Cut bacon strips in half. Wrap each asparagus spear with a half strip bacon around, leaving tip and end exposed. Lay on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake in a preheated 425-degree oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until bacon is cooked.


Serve warm or at room temperature.


Makes 16 to 20 spears
