Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use thick-cut bacon instead of thin bacon?

Yes, you can use thick-cut bacon, but it will be a bit more challenging to wrap around the asparagus. To make it easier, try stretching out the bacon before wrapping it to give it more flexibility.

Can I prepare these ahead of time for a party?

Can I make this recipe with turkey bacon for a lighter option?

You could make this recipe with turkey bacon for a lighter option, but it won't be as crispy as traditional bacon.
