Gardner Grub - Bacon Wrapped Asparagus

{Bacon Wrapped Asparagus}

Nothing is safe from being paired with bacon when I'm in the kitchen. Asparagus is one of my favorite things to wrap in the salty goodness. When Mr. G plans on grilling I usually prepare this side dish for him to throw on along with the steak, chicken, or salmon. It goes with everything. 

1. Blanch the asparagus in bowling water for 30 seconds
2. Soak them in an ice bath until cooled
3. Coat in olive oil and season with salt and pepper
4. Wrap in bundles of 3-4 with one slice of bacon then roll them in the 
olive oil mixture leftover on the plate.
5. Grill for 15 minutes, making quarter turns. Or until the bacon is cooked.

To be honest, I love the asparagus even more wrapped with prosciutto instead of bacon. It's also easier to prepare because you don't need to cook the prosciutto, just crisp it up. Follow the same steps but adjust your cooking time based on how fast the prosciutto is browning.
