Bacon Wrapped Asparagus
on The Grill
by SuperUser Account
- 1 bunch of asparagus
- 1 lb. of bacon
- 1 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
- 1 tbsp. oil
- ¼ tsp. garlic powder
- ¼ tsp. Bone Dust
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.
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.
