Bacon Wrapped Asparagus Bundles

Who doesn’t like something wrapped in bacon?  My family certainly does.  Which is why I served these bacon wrapped asparagus bundles on Easter dinner.  This idea actually came from my dad who served it up during his holiday dinner this past December.  It’s easy to make and easy to serve and each person has their own bundle.  Serves 6

1 large bunch of asparagus, washed and ends cut

6 slices of thick cut black forest bacon

Heat the oven to 425 degrees.  Wrap the raw bacon around 5-6 asparagus spears to make bundles.  Place bundles on a cooking sheet.  You’ll want to make sure the bacon end is face down on the sheet so that it doesn’t unwrap.  Cook for 15-20 minutes until bacon is crispy. 

This side dish was a huge crowd pleaser for young and old.  It’s also quick, easy and low cost.  Enjoy
