YUMtastic!: Bacon Wrapped Asparagus

MMMM YUMtastic Bacon wrapped Asparagus!

What you will need...

1. Bacon (any flavor you like, but I love using maple flavored organic bacon) about half a pack will cover it.
2. Asparagus (a whole bunch, about 1lb)
3. Garlic cloves
4. clove powder
5. cinnamon
6. Butter
7. sea salt and black pepper

First things first...drop your fresh asparagus into some boiling water! Allow the asparagus to soften slightly. Don't over boil it or it will become too mushy for the baking process. I like mine slightly softer, but cook it to your liking.

Once the asparagus is done remove it from the water and allow it to cool a few minutes. Then wrap it in that lovely maple bacon!

Lay these cute little bowties on a cookie sheet that has a thin layer of olive oil. And begin making your buttery garlic baste.

In a pot heat up a stick of butter, 4 chopped cloves of garlic, a pinch of clove powder, a pinch of cinnamon, a pinch of sea salt, and a pinch of black pepper.

Simmer the buttery garlic mixture for about 5 to 10 minutes, then pour generously over the asparagus bacon bushels!

Place them in the oven at 375 for 15 to 25 minutes. I like mine extra COOKED as you see in the pictures, but obviously you do not NEED to do that. :) Cook to your taste. Sprinkle some cinnamon and salt on top and then SERVE! YUMtastic!

As always enjoy your food with friends, I made these little lovelies for the Easter celebration at my folk's house this past April! They are ALWAYS a crowd pleaser.

Be Blessed & may all your meals be YUMtastic!
cheers, Francey the Foodie <3
