Grilled Bacon Wrapped Asparagus

Your friends will rave over this recipe!

This is a great appetizer for entertaining as the recipe doesn’t require that much prep and you can hang out with your friends outside while the asparagus do their thing on the grill. Your friends will rave over this dish!

Take large Asparagus (not the skinny ones- you’ll need the big ones to support all that bacon!) and cut off the stems. Rinse and dry.

Using one normal sized pack of bacon, wrap one piece around each asparagus so that the sides slightly overlap. If the bacon is too long for the end, cut it off at an angle with cooking shears.

Next, preheat your grill to medium heat. Place asparagus on the grill and then turn down your burner to medium/low heat. The fat from the bacon may cause the grill to flare up which is why you should continue to grill on medium low to discourage flare ups.

Flip the asparagus once during the cooking process. The asparagus are done when the bacon has completely cooked, about 20 minutes.

(I recommend using the Thermapen to check internal temps as a full-proof method for measuring temperature.)

Everything is better with bacon!
