Bacon Wrapped Asparagus

SidesWhitney CarlsonComment

Every once in a while in the Staples household, we get fancy. Remember, we have a 16-month old (who wolfed down two of these entire "packs" of asparagus AND salmon - wow!), so we don't have time to spend hours in the kitchen. These are the perfect appetizer or side dish to make for parties or a romantic dinner because they take all of 5 minutes to prep and about 10-12 minutes to bake.  Their taste is amazing too!

Note: Wondering if bacon is clean? We buy the best cuts of organic bacon we can find. This means humanely raised, pasture-raised pork with very little to no sugars. 


  • 24 fresh asparagus stalks
  • 3 pieces of bacon, cut in half 
  • 6 wood toothpicks


  • coarse grind sea salt
  • coarse grind black pepper
  • onion powder


1. Preheat oven to 385 degrees F. 

2. Prepare your asparagus stalks by washing/rinsing and cutting off ends.

3. Group 4 asparagus stalks together and secure by wrapping a piece of bacon around the stalks and securing with a toothpick.

4. Place on a foil-lined baking pan and sprinkle sea salt, black pepper and onion powder on asparagus/bacon "packs" to taste.

5. Bake for 10-12 minutes until bacon is fully cooked. 

6. Allow to cool slightly. Serve warm.

Serving Size: 

Count on about 2-3 "packs" per person.
