  • 12 slices Hickory Smoked Bacon

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Cut the bacon strips in half lengthwise, so you have 24 long, skinny strips. Wrap each asparagus stalk tightly with bacon and place on a wire rack over a rimmed sheet pan. Season with ground pepper.
  3. Bake until bacon is crisp and asparagus has browned.
