Someone brought these to a 1st Communion party and they were delicious!

garlic salt
1/4 tsp
freshly ground pepper

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Divide asparagus spears into 12 bundles (3-4 pieces each). Wrap 1 piece of bacon around each bundle, starting 1/2" from bottom of the tips. Secure the bacon-wrapped asparagus with a toothpick. Arrange bundle in a shallow baking pan.

I made these for a pool party on Sunday and my husband turned up his nose and flatly told me that no one would eat them. Well, the men loved them and my husband said he was glad I didn't listen to him! Delicious!

I made this but found that there was so much grease from the bacon. Next time I think I will rfry the bacon a bit to get rid of some of the grease
