Bacon wrapped Asparagus

It's hard finding new ways to prepare veggies that the Hubby and I will eat. Usually it's just easier to eat them raw. We're trying to be grown ups and like them more, so when I saw this recipe for bacon wrapped asparagus I knew this was something we would both love. Disguising your veggies as bacon is always a good idea. It also fit nicely into our healthy weight watcher dinner.

Bacon wrapped Asparagus

1/2 lb asparagus (aprox. 20 3" pieces) 
10 pieces bacon
2 tsp. olive oil
salt and pepper

Cut the bottoms off the asparagus-- make them approximately 3 inches long. Cut bacon pieces in half. Wrap a bacon piece around the asparagus leaving the tips exposed. Secure the bacon with a toothpick or just make sure it is wrapped tightly. Brush the tips with a little bit of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Cook on grill until bacon is crispy and asparagus is tender. 


4 pieces of asparagus = 3 points plus
