I hope everyone had a great weekend! It's Monday again already. How did this happen? Any who we all know I am not a fan of asparagus how ever my family is. So I made these bad boys a while back and they gobbled them right up. Wrapped in bacon and roasted to perfection, I guess they were good! LOL
1 Bunch of Asparagus
4 Slices of Bacon, preferably thinly sliced
Freshly Ground Black Pepper
Course Sea Salt
Preheat the oven to 425°F, line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray it with nonstick spray. Trim the tough ends from the asparagus, wash and pat dry.
Slice the bacon lengthwise into thirds. Working at an angle, wrap 4 or 5 asparagus spears around the middle with a strip of bacon and arrange them in a single layer on the baking sheet.
Moderately drizzle olive oil and balsamic over the entire sheet. Grind some pepper over the top, and sprinkle desired amount of salt. Roast for 5 minutes before checking. Give the pan a good shake to distribute the oils at this point. Roast for another 5-10 minutes, or until cooked to your preference.
Transfer to a plate and serve!
