Ingredients

  • 1 bunch asparagus
  • 5 strips of bacon
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp honey or maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • ground pepper
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice

Instructions

  • Snap off ends, remove skins, wash and pat asparagus dry.
  • In a bowl, toss asparagus with 1 tsp olive oil and 1/4 tsp salt. Shake them good and set aside.
  • Arrange bacon strips onto your roasting rack (prefer for even heat distribution without turning).
  • Turn on your oven. Place bacon strips rack into oven before it preheating process (to 400 F), let pre- roast for about 4 minutes. This will help to remove some extra moisture in bacon.
  • After bacon just turn a little crisp but still flexible enough to wrap, get them out and let cool down.
  • If you're using a lined pan to pre-roast bacon earlier, turn the strips upside down.
  • Glaze these strips with some honey or maple syrup.
  • Wrap each strip around 4-8 stalks of asparagus (depend on size) and place them back onto roasting pan/rack.
  • Roast for 10-15 minutes until all bacon is crispy.
  • When done, remove from oven and sprinkle on some ground pepper.
  • Season with lemon juice before serving if desired.
