    These asparagus can easily be prepared in the oven or on the grill. They are so easy to make and only take about 5 minutes of prep work. It’s important to remember to cut the bacon in half and leave room when wrapping it around the asparagus so it has room to cook.

    1. Cut the bacon in half, down the middle to create 12 strips.
    2. Wrap the bacon around the asparagus spears.
    3. Place onto the pan with the bacon ends on the bottom. Salt and pepper.
    4. Bake for 20 minutes, or until crisp.
