Ingredients

  • 24 stalks asparagus trimmed
  • 12 slices bacon center-cut preferable
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Start by preheating the oven to 400 °F. Since we want to make the bacon nice and crispy, we will need to use an oven-safe cooling rack. Place the cooling rack on a cookie sheet to keep the oven free from drippings. 
  • Trim the asparagus and coat it with olive oil, salt, and pepper. 
  • Cut the bacon strips lengthwise and wrap each asparagus stalk tightly with it. 
  • Bake for ten minutes and turn it over with the help of tongs. Bake for another ten minutes or until bacon is crispy. 
  • To get the bacon-wrapped asparagus stalks nice and crispy, place it under "broil" for two minutes. Enjoy!
