Love grilled asparagus. I prefer mine grilled in bunch to single spears.

Delicious and simple. I squeeze a bit of fresh lemon juice on them when they come off the grill.

Perfect little hand held treats. I used the Pencil Thin Asparagus. I also cut the slices of bacon length wise in half. forming one thin. long skinny strip. I also sautéed the asparagus for a few minutes in garlic infused olive oil. Cooled for a few minutes then wrapped the bacon around the asparagus. They browned up perfectly, leaving the asparagus crisp tender. I also sprinkled the finished spears with some parm cheese. I served as an appetizer. Its a yum for sure. VFE.

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
