Bacon Wrapped Asparagus

Do you want your kids to try and enjoy a veggie that you haven't had a much sucess getting them to eat in the past?  I will give you my advice...wrap bacon around it.  Heck, that is a good way to get me to eat my veggies up too!  The best part about this recipe is that it looks fancy but it is SO easy!

Bacon Wrapped Asparagus Bundles

1 bunch of asparagus
salt and pepper
bacon strips

Lay strips of bacon flat on a paper towel lined plate.  Cover with another paper towel.  Precook bacon for 2-3 minutes.  You are not trying to cook the bacon all the way, you just want to get it started so that the asparagus does not overcook while you are trying to get the bacon to cook nicely.

Spray nonstick cooking spray on a baking sheet and preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  Bundle 3-4 asparagus spears together and wrap a slice of bacon around them.  Place them on the baking sheet.  Continue process until you have used all of your asparagus spears.  Sprinkle salt and pepper over bacon wrapped bundles.  

Place in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes or bacon is done to your liking.  Enjoy!
