BACON WRAPPED ASPARAGUS RECIPE


This is combination of bacon and asparagus, vibrant asparagus wrapped in perfectly crisp bacon in less than 15 minutes. Here’s how to do it.

Prep Time    :  5 mins
Cook Time   : 15 mins
Total Time    : 20 mins

Servings      : 5

INGREDIENTS

·         5 slices bacon (not thick-cut)
·         1 pound medium asparagus (about 1/2-inch thick), ends trimmed
·         10 toothpicks, soaked in water at least 5 minutes
·         Freshly ground black pepper



INSTRUCTIONS

1.  Arrange a rack in the top third of the oven and heat to 450°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil and place it in the oven while it is heating. Meanwhile, prepare the bacon and wrap the asparagus.
2.  Place a double layer of paper towels on a large plate. Place the bacon slices on the paper towels in a single and cover with another layer of paper towels. Microwave on HIGH for 1 minute.
3. When the bacon is cool enough to handle, divide the asparagus into 5 bundles. Starting just under the scaly tips of the asparagus, wrap each bundle tightly with 1 slice of bacon in a downward spiral toward the other end, doing your best to not overlap the bacon. Secure each end with a toothpick.
4.  Carefully remove the hot baking sheet from the oven. Place the bundles on the baking sheet and season with a few grinds of pepper. Roast until the asparagus is crisp-tender, about 12 minutes. Turn on the broiler and broil until the bacon is to the desired crispness, 2 to 3 minutes more. Serve immediately.



NOTES

·       No microwave: If you don’t have a microwave, place the bacon on the foil-lined baking sheet and cook in the oven while it is preheating until some of the fat starts to render out, about 5 minutes. Proceed with wrapping the asparagus bundles.
·       Doubling the recipe: If doubling this recipe, you can still roast it all on one baking sheet.
·    Storage: Leftovers can be refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
