MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 26, 2014

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.

Now who would have ever thought to wrap asparagus with bacon - it got my kids to eat the asparagus - I did wrap two together just to get more veggies down the kidlets

I prepared this by bunching 5 spears and baking. My husband said it would work better with thinner sliced bacon but the end result was very flavorful.

I baked these and wrapped them in a bundle of four or five. It was very flavorful and my husband suggested it would be better with thinner sliced bacon
