Grilled Bacon Wrapped Asparagus

Days ago we saw chef Aaron McCargo, Jr in Food Network who has his cookout show.Actually hubby who told me to look at the food he cooked to entertain his guests.One of his food was Grilled Ham wrapped with Asparagus.Hubby was impressed 0f his ham wrapped asparagus.And I was impressed with the simplicity and hassle free idea to make this side side or appetizer.I adapted his idea but change mine slightly to bacon instead of ham.If you have party or BBQ cookout,this side dish is really an ideal coz it's look presentable and not to said it's taste great too!

1 lb fresh asparagus,trim asparagus approximately 1 1/2 inches from the bottoms,prefer bigger size asparagus
1 package pre-cut thick bacon
1:Preheat grill or oven..I used oven so I set to 400 F Broil setting.
2:Washed and slightly peel the asparagus from just below the tip to the end.
3:Wrap the bacon tightly around each asparagus stalk. If you have smaller size asparagus,use 3-4 stalks.Put on the grill or oven and cook the asparagus turning frequently until slightly charred, 2 to 3 minutes.If you use oven prepared a baking tray with aluminum foil and grill for 20 minutes..
4:Remove from grill and serve warm as side side or appetizer.

I didn't add any seasoning on the asparagus coz the bacon has full or flavorful seasoning!

I think anything goes with bacon..LOL..
Hey have you tried or seen bacon wrapped jalapeno I think is called. And I think there is cream cheese in it too..Pretty good I don't know how to make it but its sold in the grocery store so you just take it home and put it in the grill or in the oven. Look into that I'm sure you and ur hubby might like it.
