Bacon Wrapped Asparagus




This easy bacon wrapped asparagus recipe is baked in the oven, with some tricks for extra crispy bacon. Everyone loves these easy asparagus and bacon appetizers. They’re naturally paleo and low carb, too. Ready in just 30 minutes!
I’ve been making this baked bacon wrapped asparagus recipe (and occasionally prosciutto wrapped asparagus) for years, and it occurred to me that I have yet to put it on the blog. It was about time to change that. You can always use more asparagus and bacon appetizers, right?

With other bacon asparagus recipes, I’ve noticed that often times the asparagus is soft before the bacon has had the chance to crisp up. Yuck, who wants soggy bacon? I was on a mission to avoid this.
I’m pleased to report that I found a way! And ever since then, this has been one of my favorite asparagus and bacon recipes.
In fact, this bacon wrapped asparagus in the oven pretty much tops my list when it comes to paleo asparagus appetizers… and bacon appetizers, too. Even if you’re not a huge fan of asparagus, give it a try.
It’s a good sign when you hear comments along the lines of, “I don’t usually like asparagus but this is really good!” Seriously, asparagus with bacon is so much better than it is plain.
