To begin making Bacon Wrapped Asparagus I prepared the vegetables I would be using.  I snapped the ends off of one bunch of asparagus, sliced up some red pepper, yellow pepper and some yellow onion.

Now, I made this two different ways.  How you choose to make it will depend on your preference for the bacon.

One option is to start with uncooked bacon and lay a few sticks of asparagus across and pile on some of the other vegetables.

How many sticks of asparagus you use will depend on how many servings you want.  Just divide up the vegetables between the number of slices of bacon you have chosen.

Sprinkle the vegetables with a bit of salt and pepper.

Or you could precook the bacon for a few minutes to end up with a crispier result.  Bacon Wrapped Asparagus is great either way.

To precook the bacon slices I preheated the oven to 400F and lined a baking sheet with tinfoil.

I placed the baking pan in the preheated oven for 8 – 10 or until the bacon was just starting to cook but was not starting to shrink yet.

After letting the bacon cool for a couple of minutes I preceded as mentioned earlier and lay some sticks of asparagus and sliced vegetables across each slice.

Then I sprinkled the vegetables with a bit of salt and pepper.

After rolling up the vegetables in the uncooked bacon I placed them on a baking sheet lined with tinfoil.

After wrapping the vegetables up in the slightly cooked bacon I returned the wraps to the tinfoil lined baking sheet.

Then I placed the baking sheet in the preheated 400F oven for 20 – 25 minutes until the asparagus and bacon were cooked.

I baked the precooked bacon pan for about 20 minutes until the asparagus looked cooked and the bacon was getting crispy.

Then after removing the Bacon Wrapped Asparagus from the oven I transferred them to a serving plate and served immediately.  This is a picture of the wraps that had not had the bacon precooked.

How you choose to prepare Bacon Wrapped Asparagus is totally up to personal preference.  How many vegetables you put in each wrap depends on how many slices of bacon you are using for your occasion.

 I put anywhere from 2 to 4 sticks of asparagus in each of my wraps depending on who will be eating them.  I usually make 8 servings in case there is someone looking for seconds!

Bacon Wrapped Asparagus is a wonderful combination of flavours and colours that will be a great addition to your side dish repertoire.
