Bacon wrapped asparagus experiment

I had some asparagus leftover from dinner a couple nights ago and I've always seen it wrapped with bacon on tv so I decided to give it a shot. I like my bacon crispy so I let it cook in the toaster oven for about 10 minutes at 450. The asparagus I had were very thin spears so it overcooked a little and the tips got burned ( I like charred food so it was actually a plus) but boy was it delicious! I ate all 7 spears and was sad there was no more.


Before.


Wrapped in bacon. I put it in the oven with just the foil so always fold the ends up to make a little tray so the fat doesn't go everywhere.



After! The bacon was perfectly cooked, just a little crispy and the asparagus had a good bite to it, mmmmmmmm. Sorry in advance if you hate bacon aaaah.

  3. They are two of my favorite foods! I could eat asparagus every day. Wish I could do that with bacon but too much salt. Bacon is so good nice and crispy. Just have it once in awhile.

  5. Oh it is gorgeous - we use parma ham sometimes too as it's less salty than bacon.
    Personally I love it just boiled or grilled slightly with melted garlic butter. Mmmmm.
