Bacon wrapped asparagus bunch
This recipe quickly became a favorite of people. My mother tried Trisha Yearwood’s asparagus bunch recipe, and the family immediately announced that it should be added to the regular side dish rotation. Yes, we are big fans of asparagus, and if you have ever eaten this recipe, you will too.
I don’t know how good it is to wrap delicious bacon on already delicious vegetables. Seriously, my friends. I promise if you give it a try, you will love these asparagus wraps. I have them on my menu next week-delicious!
The recipe requires butter, brown sugar, soy sauce, etc… How can you make a mistake, right? 😉
The umami flavor of asparagus complements the rich saltiness of bacon.
To make sure you pick the best asparagus, use the following tips:
- Buy at the right time: They grow in early spring. Unless you live in a warm climate, such as Arizona, it is still winter, but it feels like spring.
- Look for a bunch of asparagus spears with very tight buds.
- Looking for a bunch of medium-sized stems
- Do not store in plastic. Store in an open brown bag, in a crisper, or stand upright in a glass of water near the front of the refrigerator for up to 10 days.
- Be sure to wash them and trim the stems before using
Trim the stem: The roots of asparagus are usually very hard and need to be trimmed. If you bend the asparagus, it will break at the soft part starting from the thicker part. You can also use a sharp paring knife to trim where the asparagus thickens. The thicker part may be slightly different in color.
How to make asparagus bunches

wrap. Wrap 1 piece of bacon around each pack and secure with a toothpick.
place. Place the bag in the casserole.
Combine boiling. In a small pot, combine butter, brown sugar, soy sauce, garlic salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then pour on the asparagus bunch.
bake. Cook for 20-25 minutes.
You can also cook these buns on the grill! Let the wrapped asparagus marinate in the sauce for 3-5 minutes. Heat the grill to 400ºF. Place a piece of tin foil on the grill, put the asparagus bunch on the tin foil, and bake for 20-25 minutes. If you have a vegetable tray for grilling, you can use it instead of aluminum foil.
Tips, tricks and storage
How do I crisp the bacon? If your asparagus bunches are already cooked, but you want the bacon to be crisper, just place them under the broiler for a few minutes. Observe carefully to prevent them from burning.
Do it in advance: You can prepare these packages a day in advance, cover the plates with plastic wrap and refrigerate them until you are ready to bake them.
Store leftovers: These bags are best eaten immediately after baking, but if you have leftovers, you can store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator. To heat them, just place them under the broiler for 1-2 minutes. Observe carefully, because they will burn very quickly.
