Bacon Wrapped Asparagus


Everything is better with bacon.   In yakitori (BBQ chicken skewers in Japan – which I’ll post a great recipe for in the near future), they use bacon to wrap asparagus, quail eggs, scallops and even green onions.  So bacon wrapping has been around for a while and for good reason, it is delicious!

However, after a while of making the traditional version, I started looking for something that would give it an extra dimension in complexity.  After some experimenting, I came to adding 2 more ingredients that really took this traditional dish and added that extra kick I was looking for! 

And since we’re really feeling bold, we’ll add a thinly sliced, lightly fried garlic on top as well.  It really sets off the dish!

This dish is low-carb/keto friendly and also adds all the benefits that asparagus brings to your digestive system and health!

The way I cook this dish is with a toaster oven.  I really prefer using a toaster oven over traditional ovens since there is no preheating and in my opinion, does a better job at crusting since the food is closer to the heating element.

4) Place 2 pieces of asparagus onto the bacon piece and roll up asparagus with bacon.  Once rolled, place a toothpick through the asparagus to maintain shape throughout cooking (try to keep the conjoining point on the bottom to help maintain shape).

5) Place aluminum foil over tray and place bacon on the tray.  Set toaster oven (or conventional over) for 460F and cook for 10-12 minutes.
