Grilled Bacon Wrapped Asparagus On The BBQ

Asparagus bundles wrapped in bacon.

We had some friends over today, and we wanted to fire up the grill again. I had seen a recipe from Nibbles of Tidbits on Pinterest, and thought it would be fantastic (I mean, c’mon…who doesn’t love bacon-wrapped anything??). The asparagus I picked up had pretty tough stems, so I trimmed them pretty short. I didn’t realize that I should have wrapped them almost completely (instead of like a cute little bacon-y belt) to keep the asparagus from getting singed on the grill. I also thought it might be a little better with a bit oil and a squeeze of lemon squeezed at the end to add a little moisture and some acid. Ah well…next time!
