Bacon-Wrapped Asparagus

I’m not really fond of eating vegetables, you can say the I’m very picky with food but it doesn’t mean that I don’t eat vegetables. I eat vegetables pero di yata lalagpas ng 20 vegetables ang kinakain ko. Hehehe! 

Anyway, asparagus is one of my favorite vegetable, expensive nga lang. But whenever I see this in the grocery na less than P100 ang bundle, I will surely buy it. Most of the time I just saute it with butter or olive oil + salt and pepper to taste. 

But for a change, I made Bacon-Wrapped Asparagus last New Year’s Eve. Bacon + Asparagus = yum yum yum. This is one thing that I always look forward if I will eat in Yakimix or Sambokojin.  

This dish is so easy to make and few ingredients are needed. 

Asparagus (cleaned and sliced into 3-4 inches) 
Olive oil 
Salt and Black Pepper 

Preheat oven to 400F 
Drizzle some olive oil in your trimmed asparagus. 

Season with salt and pepper or you can remove salt if your bacon is salty.
I sliced the bacon in half. 
Gather few pieces of asparagus and wrapped it using bacon.  

Bake for 12 minutes or more depending on the thickness of your asparagus.

  5. I love asparagus, too, but like what you said, it can be quite expensive. I haven't tried eating bacon-wrapped asparagus yet!

  6. We usually cook this since we want that crunchy feeling every time we chew :) I like this since it's very easy to do pa :)

  7. Before I'm not fond of vegetables also but when I got preggy to my first baby, I forced myself to eat veggies and I love asparagus, too! I would really love to try this bacon-wrapped asparagus soon, thanks for sharing the recipe Michi!
