HOW TO MAKE BACON WRAPPED ASPARAGUS:
This is such a simple recipe! You can make this with very little work. I promise!
Just rinse the asparagus and remove the bottom parts of the stalk.
Get the bacon ready by slicing it in half.
Take 5-6 asparagus stalks and wrap bacon around them securing with a tooth pick. Just keep doing his until you have used all of the asparagus.
Now it is time to brush on the barbecue sauce. My kids like to help with this part. 🙂
Get your grill ready!
Spray your grilling basket with cooking spray and add the asparagus bundles.
Note- You can put the asparagus directly on the grill but I don’t recommend it. They can fall and it just makes it so much easier to have the basket.
Grill on medium heat for just a few minutes or until the bacon is crispy. Salt and pepper to taste.
I like extra black pepper and a dash of garlic powder on my asparagus.
