A great way to enjoy an amazing vegetable. Just another great thing to wrap in bacon!

Ingredients
  

  • 1 Bunch Asparagus
  • 1-2 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp Kosher Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1/4 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 Lb Thin Sliced Bacon

Instructions
 

  • Preheat grill, smoker, or oven to 350.  Wash the asparagus and chop off the button inch or two of each piece.  Place the asparagus into a bowl.  Drizzle 1-2 Tbsp of olive oil on the asparagus.  Add salt, pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder.  Mix the oil and seasonings so they are evenly distributed on the asparagus.  
  • Separate the asparagus into groups of 8-10 pieces.  Cut the bacon slices in half so they are shorter.  Wrap each group of 8-10 pieces of asparagus about half way up with a half slice of bacon.  Place each group in the grill, smoker, or oven for about 20-30 minutes.  The asparagus should be a beautiful dark green color with a slightly crunchy texture, and the bacon should be the perfect texture. Enjoy!

If you are looking for a great side for your steak dinner, look no farther than asparagus.  Asparagus is beautiful, crunchy, and delicious.  I have found that giving it a touch of smoke and fire is a great way to even more elevate the delicious side.  It doesn’t take much to present asparagus beautifully, because it is beautiful all on it’s own.  I am a bacon lover though, so I just had to try incorporating it somewhere.  

Bacon is love.  Bacon is happiness.  Bacon is the culinary hug that we have, but don’t deserve.  Wrapping mini bunches of asparagus with a half slice of bacon is exactly the hug that vegetables need.  Add all of that with the seasoning on the asparagus, and the grilled flavor, and you will have a perfect side to your steak dinner that you will be sure to love.
