Ingredients For spicy bacon wrapped asparagus

  • 1 bunch
    asparagus (cleaned)
  • 4 Tbsp
    olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp

How To Make spicy bacon wrapped asparagus

  • 1
    Prepare a broiler pan or use a wire rack covered with aluminium foil. Preheat oven to 450 degree
  • 2
    Clean asparagus by rinsing well in cool water. Hold bottom of stalk and about 3 inches above the bottom and snap. Asparagus will break right at the soft spot and that is a good way to make sure you don't get a hard stalk that needs a longer cooking time then these little bundles do.

    Pat dry and place on a baking sheet or cutting board.

    *****QUICK TIP: Save the ends you snap off for use in a casserole! I use mine in a Chicken Mushroom Asparagus Casserole I make :)
  • 5
    Drizzle with olive oil, rolling the asparagus with the palm of your hand to coat well with oil.
  • 6
    Sprinkle with True {lime} Seasoning (I love the True family of seasonings! Pick up your favorite flavors and try them they really are a WONDERFUL all around go to blend!) Or sprinkle with garlic, cilantro and lime juice. Roll around again with the palm of your hand Sprinkle with red pepper flakes and roll around again. You are just getting the asparagus well coated all around by all the rolling you are doing :)
  • 7
    Sprinkle with salt and pepper and just let them hang out while you separate your bacon slices
  • 8
    Decide how many you want in a bundle to wrap. I go with 4-5 depending on the size of the stalk. Gather them up in a little bundle and starting at top of asparagus wrap bacon around to bottom. I cut a small slit in the widest part of the slice of bacon and at the end of wrapping it around I stick a stalk of asparagus through it to hold it in place.

    Place bundles on your prepared pan. Place in 450 degree oven for 10 -15 minutes or until bacon is done to your preference. Just remember the longer it cooks the more mushy the asparagus will get :)
