Grilled asparagus wrapped in bacon is hands down one of my favorite sides to make! When buying the ingredients, make sure to purchase enough bacon slices to account for 1 slice of bacon for every 3 asparagus spears. Serve this grilled Bacon Wrapped Asparagus as a side or eat it by itself for an amazing snack! Trust me, this will be your go to way of making asparagus from now on!
- 24 fresh asparagus stalks, ends trimmed
- 8 slices of bacon, regular cut
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- Preheat the grill
Preheat the grill to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Prep the asparagus for grilling
Remove the tough, bottom ends of the asparagus by either snapping them off or cutting them with a knife. Toss the asparagus in olive oil and then season with salt & pepper. Grab 3 asparagus stalks and hold them together evenly. Starting right under the tips of the stalks, wrap tightly with a piece of bacon down to the bottom – overlap if needed. Continue with the remaining asparagus bunches.
- Grill the bacon wrapped asparagus
Place the bacon wrapped asparagus bunches directly on the grill grate and grill for 25-30 minutes until the bacon is crisp and the asparagus is tender.
- Serve the grilled bacon wrapped asparagus
Remove the bacon wrapped asparagus from the grill, let cool for a few minutes, and enjoy them as a side or by themselves for an amazing snack!
