I may have said this before, but asparagus is not my fav veggies. This is not to say I dislike it. It just doesn’t doesn’t do much for my tastebuds.

Most days it’s just a weird green food that makes my pee smell bad. But,

Wrapping asparagus in bacon makes it worth the bad pee smell experience.

If you aren’t getting gout-worthy levels of asparagus in your diet … you might after this recipe.

All thanks to this great recipe from Chef Ani per the Whole Foods “A Salute to Bacon” cooking class I attended. 

She even demo-ed how to partly cook the bacon “blanch” it first in hot water so it would time better when baked with the asparagus, which is an AWESOME trick.


Yield: 4 side dish servings.


  • 1 ½ pounds asparagus, tough ends trimmed
  • 4-6 thin-cut slices of bacon
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 1 tablespoon sherry vinegar



  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Bring a large saucepan of water to a simmer.
  3. Add the bacon and cook for 6-7 minutes, or until some of the fat has visibly rendered from it.
  4. Make four piles of asparagus and sprinkle each with a little shallot and sherry vinegar.
  5. Season with salt and pepper, then wrap in bacon.
  6. Place your bundles on a cooling rack over a cookie sheet and roast for 8-10 minutes, or until bacon is crisp and asparagus is very tender, turning as necessary.
