For more than 2,000 years, people have used asparagus in food and medicine. This green has high levels of folate, which, when paired with vitamins B6 and B12 (as in asparagus), can help prevent heart disease and other cardiac conditions. It also has high levels of vitamin K, which is crucial for heart health and calcium management. Apart from its health advantages, asparagus can be prepared as a tasty appetiser due to its crunchy texture. After bacon is added, it becomes even better.

How to Prepare Asparagus Wrapped in Bacon

When choosing asparagus, make sure the stalks are solid, slender, and have deep green tips. After gathering a bunch of asparagus, stir it with a little oil, salt, pepper, and paprika.

Next, carefully wrap the bacon around one asparagus bundle, either up or down the bundle. To prevent the asparagus bundle from unravelling, place it on a baking dish or sheet pan with the bacon ends facing downward. Continue wrapping the rest of the asparagus in this manner.

After the asparagus is cooked to your preference and the bacon is properly browned, place the asparagus bundles in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes. Present and savour!

Arrange asparagus in bacon-wrapped pan.Advice:

To ensure that the bacon cooks in around the same amount of time as the asparagus, use thinly sliced bacon. If your bacon is merely thick, we suggest baking it for around ten minutes before swathing the asparagus.

Asparagus spears that are thinner will cook faster than those that are thicker. To ensure even cooking, try to use asparagus that are all the same thickness. Use thinner asparagus if you like your asparagus well-done and crunchy. Use thicker spears of asparagus for more tender, less browned results.
