Asparagus-Bacon Bundles

We love vegetables and especially thin stalk asparagus! Bacon everyone loves bacon, I believe.

If you can fine thin stalk asparagus 16 ounces, rinse and dry on paper towels then cut ends off (I save the ends for stews and soups) about 1-2″ place in a freezer safe bag. I store them in the side shelf of an upright freezer.

You’ll need 4 slices thick hickory smoked bacon cut in half to wrap around bundles. I normally make the bundle with 4-6 stalks and wrap bacon slice around the center. Place on a non stick baking sheet pan and bake in the oven @ 400 F  approx. 5-6 minutes (the bacon should crisp up nicely) drain on paper towels and serve.

We love these with a beef main dish and a favorite of twice baked potatoes with lots of cheese! YUM!

I have been known to add lemon zest and pecorino grated cheese over the top of asparagus bundles when baking is done! That is optional…

Hope you’ll enjoy!
