Bacon Wrapped Asparagus

I made this appetizer to go with Beer Beef Stew with Horseradish Mashed Potatoes. I bought the dipping sauce. I specifically wanted a spicy honey mustard type sauce and settled on Beaver Brand Sweet and Hot Mustard after scouring some blogs. This appetizer is super easy to make and definitely a crowd pleaser… C’mon it has bacon! People, especially guys, just love bacon.

Wrap the bacon tightly around the Asparagus stalk.

If you wrap it tightly enough, it should stick on the asparagus pretty well. Kinda looks like an asparagus bacon candy cane haha.

Place the bacon wrapped asparagus on a baking sheet lined with foil. Broil these on high for 25-30min depending on your oven and how crispy you like your bacon.

Meanwhile, put some sweet and hot mustard in a small dipping bowl.

Place the bacon wrapped asparagus on a paper towel before plating. This will dry up some the grease and keep your plate clean.

You could also cut these into bite size pieces and serve with toothpicks.

Hope y’all enjoy!
