How to Make Grilled Bacon Wrapped Asparagus

You’ll quickly discover how easy it is to make this bacon-wrapped asparagus recipe. If you have never tried it, it’s as simple as oiling and seasoning the spears, bundling and wrapping them in bacon, and then grilling them!

The most critical factor for grilling perfect bacon-wrapped asparagus is using thinly sliced bacon and stretching it evenly around the spears. If the bacon is too thick or if it overlaps too much when wrapping it, you’ll end up with overcooked asparagus and burned charred bacon. You want thin bacon slices that crisp up reasonably quickly, keeping the asparagus spears tender without overcooking because they have been left on the grill too long.

BONUS TIP

Thinly sliced bacon tends to be relatively inexpensive, so you’ll score one for your pocketbook too!

With grocery prices soaring, look for a bacon sale and freeze it ahead. Generally, you can freeze bacon in its original un-opened vacuum-sealed package for one month. Keep in mind that the longer it’s frozen because of its high-fat content, the more likely it may become rancid. The longer it’s stored, the more the quality and flavor of the meat will decline.

What To Do If You Don’t Have A Grill

If you don’t have a grill, another way to cook bacon-wrapped asparagus is to pop the wrapped spears in the oven. Prepare as directed, and instead of cooking on an outdoor grill, place the spears on a foil-lined baking sheet or grill pan; bake at 400° for 15-20 minutes, turning as needed until the asparagus is tender and the bacon is crisp.

The Timing of Your Grilled Meal

Since asparagus is such a great side dish for any grilled main dish, we’ve found that tossing the bacon-wrapped spears on the grill to cook while your freshly grilled meat or fish is resting works very well. With their mild, woodsy flavor from the asparagus wrapped in salty bacon, these grilled spears don’t require much seasoning to make them a Spring-worthy side dish.

LESS is Better...

This is a recipe where less is better, so your success is guaranteed by just coating the spears with Grapeseed Oil and seasoning them with your favorite steak rub seasoning before wrapping them in thinly sliced bacon. So give them a try, and let us know if they become one of your next grilled side dish top grilled veggie picks too!

INSTRUCTIONS
 

  • Preheat grill to medium-high 350-400°F
  • Laying the spears flat on a cutting board, cut (or snap [1]) the ends of the asparagus spears into 4 to 5-inch long tips. Drizzle the spears with Grapeseed Oil, and season with Steak Rub, gently rolling to cover and spice up the asparagus on all sides. Divide the total number of spears into bundles containing 4-5 spears each.

  • Once divided, wrap each bundle of spears with a half slice of bacon, gently tucking each end of the bacon between the spears to secure. Toothpicks are also an option for holding the ends of the bacon. If using toothpicks, soak them in cold water for 15 minutes before using them and remove them before serving.
  • Grill the bacon-wrapped asparagus. Place the bundles directly on the grill grates, cooking for 4-5 minutes per side or until the asparagus is tender and the bacon is crispy and slightly charred to how you like it. [2] Serve immediately!

KITCHEN NOTES

[1] Removing the ends by snapping will ensure that you don’t have any woody pieces in your bundles. To do it, bend the cut end of the spear until it naturally snaps!
If you prefer to trim with a knife, trim at least 1-1/2 inches up the spear, leaving 4-5 inch long tips.
[2] What To Do If You Don’t Have A Grill
If you don’t have a grill, another way to cook bacon-wrapped asparagus is to pop the wrapped spears in the oven. Prepare as directed, and instead of cooking on a grill, place the spears on a foil-lined baking sheet; bake at 400° for 15-20 minutes, turning as needed, until the asparagus is tender and the bacon is crisp.
