Watch how to make this recipe.
  • Preheat oven, if using, to 400 degrees F.

  • Lightly coat asparagus spears in extra-virgin olive oil. Season the asparagus with black pepper. Take a quick count of the spear tips. Divide the total number by four. Gather that number of spears and use a slice of bacon to wrap the bundle and secure the spears together. Repeat with remaining ingredients.

  • To grill, place bundles on hot grill and cover. Cook 10 to 12 minutes until bacon is crisp and asparagus bundles are tender.

  • For oven preparation, place bundles on slotted broiler pan. Bake 12 minutes.
