    Charlotte J's Note:

    Easy-to-prepare appetizer. Laurita has a good idea so the asparagus does not over cook, to pre-cook bacon a little. So try my Baked Bacon (Oven Fried Bacon) to avoid over cooking asparagus.

      Incredibly delicious!

      I took Charlotte J's suggestion and pre-cooked the bacon for 10 minutes in a 375* oven, then rolling my asparagus and completing the cooking time as suggested.

      To bump up the elegance factor for an appetizer, I went one step further for my dinner club by drizzling with a sweet balsamic reduction. The reduction was made of 1 C balsamic vinegar and 2 Tbsp brown sugar. This is brought to a boil, then turned to low and reduced until thickened for 10 minutes (or more depending on the heat of your stovetop.) Interesting interplay of flavors with the sweet reduction, the crisp bacon, and the fresh asparagus. Yum!!!

      These are excellent! I have made them several times on the grill. Even subbed thin deli ham for the bacon and it was very good also. You might also try rolling the spears in olive oil and sprinkle with seasoning salt before you wrap with bacon or ham for more flavor. Thanks for another great way to eat "greens" :).

      I couldn't stop eating these and have made them 3 times this month! Although I have to admit I do cook mine 30-35 min as I like my bacon real crispy and my asparagus soft and tender
