How to Cook Bacon Wrapped Asparagus

Asparagus is one of our most cherished spring vegetables, especially when it comes into season here in SW Wisconsin. After many months of minimal fresh produce, we are always beyond thrilled to celebrate the emerging spring ephemerals, greens & veggies. We eat as much asparagus as we can over those six or so weeks before it disappears until the following year! Trust us, you'll want to wait until the spring to enjoy this one. Once you've eaten freshly picked asparagus, you'll forever pass on out of season asparagus; it's truly a whole different experience & well worth the year-long wait! 

Servings: 8-10       Prep Time: 5 minutes     Cook Time: 10-12 minutes

Bacon wrapped asparagus

Ingredients

  • 1 pack of Driftless Provisions maple cured bacon
  • 1 lb fresh asparagus
  • Avocado oil (or preferred oil that can sustain high heats) for brushing
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Snap or cut off any woody stems on the asparagus. Lightly brush the spears with oil. Sprinkle with a bit of salt & pepper (to taste). 
  2. Evenly wrap bacon around asparagus, starting from bottom to the top. 
  3. Place on grill for ~10-12 minutes, turning a couple times to evenly cook. Cook until asparagus is tender; avoid overcooking to prevent mushy asparagus. If you prefer an asparagus recipe oven style, simply preheat your oven to 400 and follow the same steps for a delicious alternative.
