You can serve these on their own as an appetizer but I think its most fun to user them as dippers for a soft-boiled egg.


6 asparagus legs (or as many as you want to make)

6 strips bacon

1 teaspoon olive oil


Preheat your oven to 400°F. Wash and break off the woody ends of the asparagus.

Lay 6 strips bacon on a parchment lined cookie sheet and put into the oven.  This step precooks the bacon so you don’t end up overcooking the asparagus when they’re combined.  Cook for for about 7-10 minutes – you want the bacon still soft when it comes out.  Drain on paper towel.

Lightly brush some olive oil on the asparagus.

Wrap each asparagus spear in a strip (or half a strip) of bacon leaving the tip showing.  Putt he bacon wrapped spears on a clean parchment lined cookie sheet. Now put them back in oven for another 7-10 minutes or until the bacon is as crispy as you like.

Cool slightly and serve right away.
