Bacon-Wrapped Asparagus

Calories 30 kcal


  • 1-2 lbs Asparagus (ends trimmed)
  • 5 slices bacon (or 1 piece per bundle)
  • ¼ tsp Freshly ground pepper
  • ½ tsp Garlic salt
  • 1 tsp Sesame seeds


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Trim off the bottom 1’’ of the asparagus. If your bundle of asparagus isn’t the prime of the litter, bend the top of the stalk towards the bottom half of the stalk. Wherever the asparagus snaps is the part of the stalk that you should use as the top. Discard the bottom part.
  3. Divide the asparagus spears into bundles of 3-4 spears and wrap 1 piece of bacon around each bundle, starting 1/2 ‘’ from the bottom of the tips. It helps to secure the bacon with a toothpick.
  4. Top with the garlic, salt, pepper, and sesame seeds.
  5. Arrange the bundles on a baking tray that is greased/sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes, then flip them over. Continue to bake for 10-15 or until the asparagus spears look slightly wilted and the bacon is fully cooked.
