Asparagus wrapped in Bacon

It’s that time of year when everything is so fresh and you just want to eat it all! I was catering for a number of people a few weeks back and jumped at the opportunity to use asparagus as it is in season right now. These tasty little treats would be a great addition to any dish, and they’re perfect for dunking into hollandaise sauce or soft boiled eggs.

Ingredients

Equal amounts of:

  • Asparagus
  • Streaky Bacon
  • Black Pepper

Directions

Pre-heat the grill to medium. Remove all of the woody ends of the asparagus if they have not been already done, you can do this by snapping off the ends or slicing about an inch off from the bottom. Wrap the bacon tightly around each asparagus stem. Transfer all of the wrapped stems to a baking tray and grill until the bacon is golden and crispy. Season with black pepper.
