If last week’s post didn’t convince you to eat more asparagus, maybe this recipe will do the trick. It is super simple but it will knock the socks off your family, friends, neighbors, or whoever you’re serving it too!
First, preheat oven to 425°F then gather your ingredients.
Line a baking sheet with tin foil or a silicon baking mat. Wrap 2-3 asparagus in a piece of turkey bacon and set on pan. Repeat until bacon or asparagus is gone.
Mix olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic powder in a dish. Pour mixture over asparagus and bacon. Carefully toss asparagus so that it is mostly coated in olive oil. The bundles of asparagus may be hard to move without the bacon falling off. Don’t worry, when it bakes the bacon stiffens and holds the asparagus together.
Bake for 15 minutes and voila! You’ve got a tasty side dish.
Here is the full recipe:
1 lb. of asparagus (about 20 stocks)
6-9 pieces of turkey bacon
1 tbsp. olive oil
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
Preheat oven to 425°F and line baking sheet with tin foil. Wrap 2-3 asparagus with a piece of turkey bacon and set on pan. Repeat until you’re out of asparagus or bacon. Mix olive oil, garlic powder, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Pour seasonings over the asparagus bundles. Toss carefully to cover most of the asparagus and bacon with olive oil and seasonings. Bake for 15 minutes. Serve hot.
