A bundle of asparagus is drizzled with garlic steeped olive oil, wrapped in bacon and roasted. The flavor of this is outstanding.

Directions

  1. Saute garlic and parsley over low heat, then set aside to steep.
  2. Remove ends from asparagus that are tough.
  3. Lay 4 stalks of asparagus in the center of each strip of bacon and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  4. Drizzle garlic oil over each bundle.
  5. Wrap bacon around the stalks and secure with a toothpick.
  6. Place asparagus bundles on baking sheet and bake at 400° for 20 minutes or until asparagus is tender and bacon is crisp.

We loved this! I did add a scant teaspoon of dijon mustard to the olive oil/garlic blend, coating the spears before I wrapped them. I used hickory smoked bacon that was on the thick side so I baked for 30 minutes, flipping the bundles after 15 minutes. The perfect side for our Christmas Eve Dinner!

These are delicious, great for garlic lovers like me, and make a really nice presentation. The only issue I had was my own fault - I used thick cut bacon, and the bacon wasn't done enough when the asparagus was done. Next time I'll either pre-cook the bacon just a little bit, or I'll use thin cut bacon. Otherwise I made as directed, didn't need to use toothpicks though, just wrapped the bacon around the bundles. Made this for a different Thanksgiving side and it went over really well.

This was so amazing!!! I did render the bacon before wrapping, might do it more next time because i really like my bacon crispy.
