What You Need:

  • Asparagus
  • Bacon – I love the bacon from ButcherBox and it is Whole30 compliant
  • Balsamic Vinegar
  • Fresh Cracked Pepper

Let’s Cook:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 425′ and line baking sheet with parchment paper
  2. Trim the ends of the asparagus off (about a 1/2 inch) and wrap 3-4 stalks with one slice of bacon to make a bundle. Repeat until all the asparagus is wrapped
  3. Place bundles on lined baking sheet and sprinkle with pepper. Place in the pre-heated oven. Cook for 15 minutes and then broil them for an additional 2-3 minutes to get the bacon nice and crispy
  4. While the bundles are in the oven, make the balsamic reduction. Add the balsamic vinegar to a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and let simmer until it is about half the original amount and remove from heat
  5. When the bacon & asparagus bundles are done in the oven, drizzle or brush the balsamic reduction on them
  6. Add additional pepper and sea salt flakes if desired (depends on the saltiness of the bacon you use)

    Easy. Yummy. Husband likes it. What more can one ask for! And company worthy. My husband and I choose not to add the balsamic dressing. I’m making to bring to friends on Easter. thank you!!

    1. Delicious, thank you! May I confirm if the nutritional info for the entire 10 servings, or for one portion, and if so, what is the portion size?

    This recipe is AMAZING and so easy and quick!!! My husband said it was so good we should serve it when we have company over. I used balsamic glaze purchased at Trader Joe’s instead of reducing Balsamic vinegar (just because it was faster) Thanks @thebetteredblondie for another wonderful recipe!
