Bacon Wrapped Asparagus

Happy Tuesday! Just think…only three more days until the weekend! We’ll hold off on the singing until Friday though.

To celebrate Father’s Day, I decided to cook supper for my dad and Colby’s dad. I worked very hard on that meal all afternoon, and I ended up forgetting to take any pictures. I have to say that I’m a little bummed about that.

I picked my menu ahead of time, and this is what it consisted of:

  • Italian Salad
  • Lemon-Thyme Chicken
  • Bacon Wrapped Asparagus
  • Potato Salad
  • Key Lime Pie

The Bacon Wrapped Asparagus was a hit! I originally got the recipe from the Tasty Kitchen blog, which you can see by clicking on this link. I, however, am going to provide you with my version because I had to tweak it a little bit.

Grilled Asparagus

The picture you see above is not my handy-work and those are not my hands. The picture is from the Tasty Kitchen website.

On to the recipe:


  • 1 bundle of asparagus
  • 1 package of bacon


Heat the oven to 400 degrees.

Wrap one slice of bacon around each stalk of asparagus. If you choose, you can also wrap one slice of bacon around two stalks of asparagus. {This is what I preferred to do.}

Put the bacon wrapped asparagus on a cookie sheet making sure to leave a small space between each stalk. Put the cookie sheet in the oven and cook for 20 – 25 minutes. You want the bacon to be browning before you take it out.

Put it on the cutest serving dish you have and watch it be devoured. You will love it!


This recipe is so simple, and it really is delicious. Give it a try, even if you think you don’t like asparagus. I didn’t think I did either until I gave it a shot {thanks, Abby!}.


  1. i'm gonna try that! asparagus is one of my favorite things ever.

  2. I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOO stealing this recipe!!! I like asparagus but my husband doesn't. Bet he'll eat it if it's wrapped in bacon!!!

  3. So is asparagus life changing or what? This sounds yummy. I've never grilled it before like in the picture. We always roast it. I have served the roasted asparagus with proscuitto-sp? wrapped around it. Similar concept and way yummy. Can I put in a request for your tasty treat next time we're there??? :)
