    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!

    I added extra garlic to this, as I do with every recipe because we love it. Everything else stayed the same. My bacon needed to cook longer than the stated time. My family would have liked the bacon even more crisp, but the asparagus would have been over done if I left it in any longer.

    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.

    I cut the bacon slices in half and did not need the toothpicks. I also tossed the asparagus around in the oil mix before wrapping! I also sprinkled parmesan over the top! Bomb! Of course we had to have some crack green beans and lasagna to go with. :)
