Grilled asparagus wrapped in bacon is hands down one of my favorite sides to make! When buying the ingredients, make sure to purchase enough bacon slices to account for 1 slice of bacon for every 3 asparagus spears. Serve this grilled bacon wrapped asparagus as a side or eat it by itself for an amazing snack! Trust me, this will be your go to way of making asparagus from now on!
- 24 fresh asparagus stalks, ends trimmed
- 8 slices of bacon, regular cut
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
Preheat the grill
Preheat the grill to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Prep the asparagus for grilling
Remove the tough, bottom ends of the asparagus by either snapping them off or cutting them with a knife. Toss the asparagus in olive oil and then season with salt & pepper. Grab 3 asparagus stalks and hold them together evenly. Starting right under the tips of the stalks, wrap tightly with a piece of bacon down to the bottom - overlap if needed. Continue with the remaining asparagus bunches.
Grill the bacon wrapped asparagus
Place the bacon wrapped asparagus bunches directly on the grill grate and grill for 25-30 minutes until the bacon is crisp and the asparagus is tender.
