Bacon Wrapped Asparagus 

Prep Time: 35 mins

Servings: 4 


  • 1 lbs Asparagus Spears, trimmed (approx 20 to 24 spears)
  • 1 T Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
  • ½ tsp Black Pepper
  • ½ tsp Himalayan Salt
  • 4 Bacon Strips, parcooked 


  1. Preheat the oven to 400℉.
  2. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Snap the natural breaking point between the edible tops and woody stem (approx. ⅓ off the bottom of the stem).
  4. Count the number of spears and divide by 4 to determine how many will be in each serving (approx. 4-6).
  5. Gather the asparagus spears of one single bundle.
  6. Wrap the bundle with one piece of parcooked bacon, overlapping the start and end of the bacon slightly to secure it.
  7. Place the wrapped bundle on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining spears.
  8. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  9. Bake until the bacon is crisp and the asparagus is tender, about 22 to 28 minutes, depending upon the thickness of your bacon and how crisp you’d like it to be. 
  10. Serve warm or at room temperature.
