Crispy bacon-wrapped asparagus is perfect as an appetizer for parties or for a side dish during the holidays. They’re also perfect for grilling at summer barbecues!
Bacon-wrapped asparagus sure looks fancy, but is really easy to put together!
Do you have bacon? Do you have your asparagus? All you have to do is wrap them together! Those are the only two ingredients needed for bacon-wrapped asparagus.
You can season them with salt and pepper if you prefer, but the bacon gives it enough of a salty flavor for my personal taste.
You can cook them with a variety of cookware and I have included cook times and temperatures for all of them.
Set the temperature to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and bake for 18-20 minutes. After that, it’s best to broil them for 1-2 minutes so the bacon gets crispy.
Get the grill to a medium temperature, lightly oil the grates, and cook for 10-12 minutes, turning a few times for even cooking.
Instead of placing them directly on the grates, I like to use grill sheets. They get the bacon niiiice and crispy!
There’s no preheating involved with an air fryer! Spray the inside basket with olive oil (with a non-aerosol spray bottle) or rub it with coconut oil, place your bacon-wrapped asparagus bundles inside in an even single layer, and set the temperature to 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 5 minutes. Flip them, and set the timer for an additional 5 minutes.
George Foreman Grill
If it’s cold where you’re at right now or you don’t have an outdoor grill, have no fear! You can absolutely cook the bacon-wrapped asparagus bundles on your George Foreman Grill.
Allow the George Foreman grill to preheat, add the bundles in a single layer, and cook for 3-4 minutes until the bacon is crispy.
