When you work for an awesome Grill company like I do, there are some pretty fun perks. Last week we did some team building off site. We grilled! One of the recipes was Bacon Wrapped Asparagus. Holy COW! I’ve had some pretty funky experiences with asparagus. It’s been cold and undercooked, bitter and a horrible colour. But this? This recipe is better than the bee’s knees!
Delicious, crunchy, smoky, tender, and salty. If it wasn’t a lot of bacon, I could totally just eat this stuff like popcorn! Okay maybe not like popcorn, but I could eat a whole heck of a lot of this stuff!
So I wen’t home after the team building and immediately needed to make this again! Here’s how it went.
Preheat your grill to 300°F to 350°F.
Wash your asparagus and dry them in paper towel. Snap the ends off, they know where to break.
Slice the bacon in half. Wrap each asparagus spear in half of a slice of bacon – this is the hard part.
Place your bacon wrapped asparagus on the top rack of your grill.
Whisk the oil, balsamic, garlic and Bone Dust together. Baste your asparagus with some of the balsamic mixture once or twice.
Grill your asparagus for about 20 to 30 minutes, turning once or twice to make sure that the bacon doesn’t burn.
Like I said. I had to make this again pretty much right away. I added the balsamic mixture to give it a little pop, and allow the asparagus to blend nicely with the rest of the meal. I served them with Cajun Creole Crusted Pork Roast – A Recipe Club Newsletter exclusive recipe, sign up to receive them here – and Balsamic Grilled Tomatoes. What a fantastic meal!
This fresh salsa comes together fairly quickly and makes a fantastic and fresh addition to your nachos and tacos.View Details
Barbecue Style Tacos
Beef Carne Asada is Mexican barbecue style shredded beef marinated in chili spices. It’s particularly good on tacos and in burritos, but can be used in just about anything you would normally use ground beef for.View Details
With Injected Baked Potatoes
What if you can make beef more tender and melt in your mouth? “But How?” I hear you cry at your monitors! Inject your beef with a combination of red wine, beef stock and butter!View Details
Marinated For Good Measure
Heat it up or chill it out with your choices of curry paste and chili sauce. This saucy chicken recipe goes well over a bed of grill roasted vegetables and jasmine rice.View Details
With Rum BBQ Sauce
Nice and crispy skin with a sweet and tangy sauce caramelized over top. Tuck in to these legs, but beware, you will need some wet-naps.View Details
Nice Meat Spice
Ghost Pepper Turkey Meatballs are pretty versatile. Paired with pasta and marinara, or eaten as an appetizer, you can’t go wrong with these spicy bites of meaty goodness.View Details
With Smoked Bacon
What better way to use the last of that delicious sourdough bread that to make it into the best holiday side dish ever invented?View Details
So good it's spooky!
Fresh vegetables and grilled beef make up the bones of this dish, but watch out, it bites back! I really suggest that you serve your Ghost Pepper Chili with a dollop of sour cream, some cheese or a tall and cold glass of milk.View Details
