Bacon Wrapped Asparagus (Prosciutto)

I usually use prosciutto to wrap asparagus but I decided to try bacon this time. It was just as good…This is always a hit with people. My daughter, who won’t eat brussel sprouts, eats this – same with my little bro, who doesn’t like veggies! It works great as a side-dish or as an appetizer.

1 bundle of asparagus
5-6 slices of bacon (or enough to wrap bundles of 3 asparagus stalks)

 Place the bacon slices on a foil lined-baking sheet.  Cook on a 400° oven for 15 minutes. The bacon needs to be somewhat cooked so it will crisp up when wrapped in asparagus. Once you take the bacon out of the oven, wrap bundles of 3 asparagus stalks from the top of the asparagus stalk to the bottom. Place back on the foil lined baking sheet sprinkle with pepper. Cook for about 20 minutes.
