Bacon Wrapped Asparagus
Our good friend “Sissy” told us about this way to do asparagus and we think of her and thank her every time we have it. Bacon Wrapped Asparagus is way too easy, given how good it is. Preheat the oven to 500F. Cut about an inch off the bottom or stump end of the stalks. Thoroughly rinse the asparagus under cold running water. Shake the water off.
Cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Wrap a slice of bacon around each stalk, spiraling from on end to the other and spread them out on the sheet. If all you could find at the store were skinny stalks just wrap 2 or 3 of them with 1 slice of bacon. Put the sheet on a middle or upper rack in the oven. Lower rack will char the bottom of the bacon but, they still all would get eaten! Bake at 500 for about 10 minutes or until the bacon is done the way YOU want it. Serve up your Bacon Wrapped Asparagus!
