We love making Asparagus on the grill. Grilled Asparagus on the Grill is a family favorite and it only takes a few minutes to grill. But you can also make Asparagus in Foil which is another easy way to grill asparagus.

If you are looking for a way to get your family to eat asparagus, wrap it in bacon. Simple ingredients and easy to make great side dish that will please a crowd.

Ingredients needed - asparagus, bacon, salt, oil

Ingredients: 

  • Asparagus, trimmed 
  • Bacon 
  • Salt 
  • Oil (for cooking) 

How to Cook Bacon Wrapped Asparagus on Blackstone Griddle: 

  • Step 1 – Cut off the tough ends of the asparagus. Cut each thin slice bacon in half.  Wrap each of the asparagus spears with a piece of the bacon at an angle making sure to not overlap the bacon.

  • Step 4 – Place the wrapped asparagus bundles with the bacon seam side down onto the grill.  Cook for 7-10 minutes per side, flipping the asparagus frequently to cook the bacon evenly and to keep the spears wrapped in the bacon. 
  • Step 5 – When the bacon is crispy and the asparagus is tender, remove from the grill.  Let it sit for 3-5 minutes, then the asparagus is ready to serve and enjoy!

Variations:

  • Drizzle Sauce – Once the Bacon Wrapped Asparagus is done grilling, top with BBQ Sauce, honey, or maple syrup.
  • Turkey Bacon – If you prefer you can easily use turkey bacon to wrap the bacon in.
  • Change the Seasoning – We used salt and pepper, but you can easily use Italian Seasoning or Season Salt. Use what you have.

How to Cook in the Oven:

Place the bacon wrapped asparagus onto a baking sheet lined with foil.  Bake in a preheated oven to 400 degrees F for 7-10 minutes until the bacon is crispy (flip the asparagus halfway through the cook time so that the bacon cooks evenly). 

For the last minute, we like to broil the bacon wrapped asparagus to get the bacon extra crispy.

How to Trim Asparagus Spears:

When preparing Asparagus Spears for the griddle it is important to cut off the ends that are tough. To figure out where to cut, gently bend the bundle of asparagus. Where the asparagus bends is the start of the tender part.

Then line the large piece of asparagus up on a cutting board and cut with a sharp knife. This allows you trim the tough part off the stem.

Wash the asparagus thoroughly, season and wrap in bacon.

How to Store Leftovers:

Refrigerate the leftovers in an airtight container for up to 5 days. You can also use leftover asparagus in your eggs or tossed in your salad to repurpose your leftovers.
