Grilled Asparagus Wrapped in Bacon

May 29th, 2011 by Kat | 3

1 1/2 pounds fresh asparagus (the thin stuff!)
1 pound breakfast bacon
sea salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

Trim bottom third off asparagus (usually the woody part). Divide into bunches of 3-4 asparagus and wrap each bunch with 1-2 slices of bacon (depending on how long they still are). Taking two bamboo skewers, skewer 2-3 bunches with two skewers parallel to each other.

Grill on an indirect flame until the bacon is mostly crispy and the asparagus have some color. Remove and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Serve immediately as the asparagus get soggy pretty quickly.

    That cutting board looks familiar! ;-) Glad to see the asparagus went to good use!

    Love this! Is it okay to put in cheese slices in between the wrappings? or will that ruin everything? Thanks!

    I would definitely not do cheese, as it would likely just ooze out and mess up your grill, but you can also try it out yourself!
