"We make this often as an appetizer for get-togethers. I drizzle a tiny bit of sesame oil on the asparagus and use fresh ground pepper. Wrap the bacon around 3-4 stalks. As others commented, thinly sliced bacon works best with this recipe."

"Hey Cdunks, I have been doing this with turkey bacon for a while, I will soak the Asparagus in Italian dressing for about 10 minutes first and then wrap them. Two stalks per piece of Bacon, one of my friends did this a few years back and I thought it was delicious. They would also use ham sometimes."

"Unfortunately us apartment dwellers don't have grills, but these can be made in the oven. 8 minutes at 350, flip, 8 more minutes, and then set to Broil to crisp the bacon right up. Yum!"

"This is very good. Also can be done in the oven. I like to use prosciutto instead of bacon when I can afford it. And I brush with olive oil, sprinkle with tarragon or thyme for a different flavor, then bake in the oven at 350 degrees until nicely roasted. Yummy! (Nice idea to serve them with tomatos, too.)"

"I used to make something like this, but used prosciutto to wrap each piece of asparagus, drizzled with olive oil, and just put them in the oven. Frankly, I think maple bacon would be better. :) I'll give this one thumbs up, so as not to mess up the rating, though I don't think I would make it on the grill."

"Haven't followed this recipe before but after eating this at Disneyland many years ago had to try it myself. I do slightly precook my asparagus because the bacon cooks quick and the dripping cause flames, I line mine up on a fish rack for BBQing that clamps shut and if makes flipping very easy and you don't need toothpicks to keep the bacon on. I love it with fresh lemon that I squeeze over it when on my plate, Yum!"

"Awesome!!! I pre-cook the bacon in the microwave for a couple of minutes, still pliable. Otherwise, the asparagus is cooked and the bacon is still a bit raw in places. This way, some of the fat cooks off and you don't have the flare-ups on the grill and burn it."

"I have made this and love it, but also like to add a bit of a twist to it. I blanche the asparagus for a few seconds,wrap in maple bacon, place on a broiler pan and brush with melted butter with a touch of brown sugar added. I then broil till bacon is of desired doneness. Remove from oven and sprinkle with toasted almonds and return to broiler just long enough to heat the almonds. This is wonderful and never has leftovers."

"I also made this using 3 or 4 spears. Very bad after my husband brought them in from the grill. An arguement ensued and we will never make again, in his words "never put bacon on the grill" the bacon was nice and crisp, but the asparagus was carbon and very tough. And yes he followed the grilling instructions."
