Description

Easy Baked Bacon Wrapped Asparagus Bundles!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch of asparagus, ends trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • fine sea salt and pepper to taste
  • 6 slices of bacon, I do not recommend thick cut bacon as it will take too long to cook compared to the asparagus
  • 1 tablespoon of maple syrup (optional)

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees F and spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Divide the asparagus into 6 bundles. You could do more or less if desired. Mine ended up being 6 bundles of 5 asparagus spears each. Wrap the bacon around the middle of the asparagus bundles so that it overlaps a little (see photo for reference). Place the bundles on the prepared baking sheet.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil and garlic powder until combined. Plush that all over the bacon and asparagus. Sprinkle to taste with salt and pepper.
  4. Roast in the oven for 15-22 minutes or until your bacon is nicely cooked (it won’t be very crispy at all). Once out of the oven, I recommend placing the bundles on a paper towel lined plate to absorb some of the excess grease.
  5. Optional: once out of the oven, brush the bacon with a little bit of maple syrup to add sweetness.
  6. ENJOY!
