Bacon Wrapped Aparagus with Honey Glaze

Serves 4-5

Asparagus is a vegetable commonly found in spring.  If you have never tried spring asaparagus, I reccomend you do so.  My husband hates asparagus, but absolutely loved this dish!  My kids hate asparagus and they gobbled it up!  In season vegetables obtained from the farmer taste so much different from what you get at the store.  More on why that is true for all produce in a different post…. Now on to the good stuff!!

My inspiration was to turn these into something with a hint of sweetness!  The tips of these were so delicious when they were done.  The hint of bacon and honey in the background was awesome!  It is quick and easy to prepare as well!

Items in bold can be obtained locally!

You need:

 

1 bundle of asparagus seperated evenly into 4 portions

4 pieces of bacon

1/4 cup of honey

dash of sea salt (optional)

waiting to go in the oven!

Pre-heat broiler. Divide the asparagus out into even portions on pan.  Wrap one piece of bacon around each bundle.  Tak brush and brush honey all over the asparagus bundles.  Sprinkle with sea salt (if desired).  Put into oven for 5 minutes checking frequently (depending on your oven).  Using tongs flip the bundles over and cook for another 4-5 minutes checking frequently.  Take out let cool and serve.  (We did not eat the bacon, but you could).

YUM!

These were so melt in your mouth good that I could have eaten it all and not even told the family I made them! 🙂
