These turkey bacon wrapped asparagus stalks are simultaneously crunchy and tender, salty and sweet and only take 20 minutes in the oven.
Ingredients
  • 20 asparagus stalks
  • 5 slices of turkey bacon
Instructions
  1. Wash asparagus stalks and cut or break off any dead ends
  2. Slice turkey bacon into 4 long strips each, so make 20 strips
  3. Wrap bacon around asparagus as shown in the pictures and secure the ends with toothpicks where necessary
  4. Place asparagus on a wire rack in a baking sheet and bake for 20 - 25 minutes at 375F* until the bacon is crispy
  5. Remove from oven and serve immediately with your favourite dipping sauce (I used ketchup, but garlic mayo would work well also)
Notes
* Do not preheat oven. We want the bacon to get crunchy, not burn so it needs to heat up with the oven
