How to Cook Bacon Wrapped Asparagus?

These spears of asparagus wrapped in delicious maple soaked bacon are so amazing. There are a few steps to involved to get great results and I walk you through them step-by-step here. Let’s get started!

Step 1: Prepare The Bacon

There’s a little bit of prep to get these delicious Bacon Wrapped Asparagus to come out perfect. You will start with thin-sliced raw bacon and you’ll need to cut each strip in half lengthwise. You will then soak the bacon strips in a peppered maple syrup. Yum right?

Make sure to toss the bacon in the maple syrup until it is fully coated. Leave the bacon soaking in the maple syrup for now.

Step 2: Prepare the Asparagus

While the bacon soaks, you will need to prepare the asparagus. First, rinse the spears under cool water. Then trim the asparagus by cutting off the hard ends with a knife. After rinsing and trimming, you’ll need to pat the spears dry with a paper towel.

Step 3: Wrap Each Asparagus Spear With a Strip of Bacon

Next, you will wrap the asparagus with the bacon. Try to avoid overlapping the edges of the bacon as you wrap. Also, wrap the bacon so that it extends the full length of each asparagus spear.

Step 4: Prep a Baking Sheet

Prepare your baking sheet by putting foil on the bottom of it. Trust me, it will avoid a difficult clean-up! Then place a wire baking rack on the pan you covered in foil. Spray non-stick cooking oil on the rack as well to prevent the bacon from sticking. When you place the bacon-wrapped asparagus on the rack, make sure the loose bacon ends are facing down. This is how they’ll look when all is said and done.

Step 5: Roast the Bacon Wrapped Asparagus

You will roast them on the middle rack at 425 degrees for 14 minutes or until the bacon is nice and tender-crisp. Once you take them out of the oven, you will put the finishing touch on them and sprinkle them with feta cheese. Maple Bacon Wrapped Asparagus perfection!!

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425° F.
  • Add the maple syrup, and pepper to a small bowl and mix. Cut the bacon slices lengthwise into two narrow strips. Place the bacon in the bowl with the maple syrup and toss until evenly coated. Set aside.
  • Rinse the asparagus spears in cold water then remove the tough bottom ends with a knife or kitchen shears. Pat the spears dry with a paper towel.
  • Line the bottom of a rimmed baking sheet with foil and then place an oven-safe wire baking rack on the baking sheet. Spray the baking rack with non-stick cooking oil.
  • Tightly wrap each asparagus spear with a slice of bacon. Avoid overlapping the edges of the bacon and wrap the asparagus so that the bacon extends the entire length of the spear.
  • Lay the wrapped spears out on top of the baking rack with the loose ends of bacon facing down. Roast the asparagus on the middle rack of the oven for 14 to 16 minutes or until the bacon is tender-crisp.
  • Remove the baking sheet from the oven and, using a pair of tongs, stack the asparagus on a plate and sprinkle the crumbled feta cheese over the bacon-wrapped spears.
  • Serve and enjoy.
