Grilled Bacon Wrapped Asparagus

Grilled Bacon Wrapped Asparagus Skewers anyone?

What a great dish that’s a little bit naughty and a little bit nice and absolutely a great idea for this long weekend!

Ingredients

1 pound asparagus
Extra-virgin olive oil
Salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1 pound hickory smoked bacon (do not use thick cut)

Directions

Special Equipment: Wooden skewers, soaked in water for 30 minutes

  1. Preheat your grill to medium-high direct heat.
  2. Trim the asparagus of the woody ends. Place on a sheet tray and drizzle with olive oil. Season with freshly ground black pepper and salt.
  3. Wrap bacon slices around each asparagus spear. Skewer both ends of asparagus on each side to secure the bacon.
  4. Add 3 to 4 asparagus to each skewer.
  5. Grill skewers on direct heat until the asparagus is tender and the bacon is crisp about 15 minutes; halfway through the grilling flip the asparagus.
  6. Transfer to a platter, remove the skewers and serve.
