BACON. Enough said. This is an easy side dish or appetizer that is a crowd pleaser. And I’m going to blow your mind with a little trick I like to do when I’m roasting veggies for meal prepping.

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch of asparagus about 40 stalks, ends trimmed
  • 8-10 slices of bacon

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 360 degrees.
  • Wrap one piece of bacon around 3-4 stalks of asparagus.  Continue until all asparagus is wrapped in bacon.
  • Place on a rack on a baking sheet and cook for 15 minutes on one side.  Flip and cook for another 15 minutes.
  • Serve as a side dish or an appetizer.

MY TRICK:

Place the bacon wrapped asparagus on a baking rack and place on top of a baking sheet lined with either aluminum foil or parchment paper. On the baking sheet, place chopped veggies (I used broccoli here). The rack will help keep the bacon crisp up and the fat will drip down onto the baking sheet, giving your roasted veggies a delicious flavor!
