A few years ago we had a recipe for prosciutto wrapped asparagus. Bacon seems to be the new favorite.
Preheat oven to 400° F.
Bend the bottom third portion of the asparagus. It will snap to the point where the asparagus stem is tender. Save bottoms for stock. Rinse the asparagus in cool water and dry.
Wrap each asparagus with ½ slice of nitrite free bacon in a spiral fashion from the bottom to the top leaving the flower exposed.
Place on grate on top of a cookie sheet (to catch the grease). If you line the sheet with aluminum foil, clean- up will be easier
Roast for 10 minutes. Turn with tongs and cook for 10 minutes more, until bacon is crisp. Serve immediately.
