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!

Fajita Mix is perfect for chicken, but goes well with beef and pork for sure. Use it when you need to add a Mexican flair to your meal.View Details
With winter still battering us in the northern areas of North America, a good stew is just about the best thing you can eat. It warms you from the inside. It’s lighter than a beef stew too.View Details
