Reviews for Bacon-Wrapped Asparagus
"Quick, easy and delicious!"
"We make this with turkey bacon and bake it or fry it and e both love it."
"Excellent and easy!!"
"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."
