Bacon Wrapped Asparagus
How to Make Bacon Wrapped Asparagus. Wrap asparagus spears in 1 slice of bacon. Secure with a toothpick and place on the same baking sheet.
- 6 slices bacon, cut into thirds
- 5 oz. cream cheese, softened to room temperature
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- Freshly ground black pepper
- Kosher salt
- 9 asparagus spears, blanched
Preheat oven to 400° and line 1 medium baking sheet with parchment paper.
Cook bacon: In a large skillet over medium heat, cook bacon until most of the fat is cooked out, but is not crisp. Remove from pan and drain on a paper towel lined plate.
In a small bowl, combine cream cheese with garlic and season with salt and pepper. Stir until combined.
Assemble bites: Spread about 1/2 tablespoon cream cheese onto each strip of bacon. Place asparagus in the center and roll bacon until bacon ends meet. Once all bites are made, place on prepared baking sheet and bake 5 minutes, until bacon is crisp and cream cheese is warmed through. Serve.
