Recipe of the Week – Bacon Wrapped Asparagus

When asparagus season arrives, so do the kitchen experiments!  We are always trying new ways to eat asparagus.  This veggie can be cooked so many ways.  Side dishes, main dishes, in soups, in casseroles, or my favourite – in an appetizer!  Our bacon wrapped asparagus will help you have the most talked about appetizer at your next spring party!  It can easily be prepared in advance, and then cooked once your guests arrive.  Give it a try!

Ingredients

12 asparagus spears – washed and trimmed
6 slices of bacon – halved lengthwise

Directions

Preheat your oven to 375 F.  Lay the halved slice of bacon on a cutting board, and place the asparagus on top on an angle.  Wrap the bacon around the asparagus.  Place on a wire cooking rack, with the end of the bacon facing down on the rack.  This will help keep the bacon in place.  Repeat for all 12 pieces of asparagus.  Bake for 10 minutes.  Take out of the oven and flip each asparagus spear over.  Bake 10-15 minutes longer, until bacon is crispy and cooked to your liking.
