How to Make Bacon-Wrapped Asparagus :

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Divide asparagus spears into 12 bundles (3-4 pieces each). Wrap 1 piece of bacon around each bundle, starting 1/2″ from bottom of the tips. Secure the bacon-wrapped asparagus with a toothpick. Arrange bundle in a shallow baking pan.

Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until spears have begun to wilt and bacon looks fully cooked. Enjoy!
