Ingredients

  • 1 ½ - 2 pounds asparagus , ends trimmed
  • 8 - 10 slices bacon thick or regular cut
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic 
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • ½ -1 teaspoon salt to taste
  • ½ teaspoon pepper to taste
  • 1- 2 tablespoons olive oil 
  • parsley for garnish (optional)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400-degree F (200 Degrees C).
  • Line a large baking sheet with parchment or foil paper. Set aside. 
  • Place the bacon in a single layer on a prepared baking sheet. 
  • Bake bacon in the oven for about 12-15 minutes; cooking time will vary depending on the thickness of the bacon. The idea is to cook the bacon halfway.
  • While bacon is cooking, make the spice mix. In a medium bowl, mix together minced garlic, Italian seasoning, salt, pepper, and oil. 
  • Remove the bacon from the oven, drain grease, and let it cool slightly; enough for you to be able to handle it. Discard parchment paper from the and replace it with a clean one. Set baking tray aside. 
  • Pick 3-4 asparagus, place on top of a bacon strip and wrap around the asparagus, tuck the ends underneath the asparagus.
  • Place on the baking sheet with the bacon seam-side down. Repeat this process until all the asparagus has been used up.
  • Brush spice mixture over asparagus and bacon making sure every inch is covered with the spice mixture.
  • Bake wrapped asparagus bundles for about 15-20 minutes, or until asparagus is cooked to preference. Time will vary depending on the thickness of the asparagus.  
  • Remove from the oven and garnish with parsley. Serve immediately.
