An easy grilling side...

Bacon wrapped asparagus om the grill.

It seems that everyone is wrapping asparagus in bacon (or even thinly sliced beef), and since I love both asparagus and bacon, I had to give it a try.  This was as simple as taking the spears, snapping off the tough ends, and wrapping in bacon.  If you have large spears, I would wrap one or two with a slice of bacon, but if you have skinny spears like I had, use three or four.  I also used a thick sliced peppered bacon that we really like, so I only used half slices and stretched them a bit to thin them out.  If I had not used the peppered bacon, I would have given these a generous grinding a fresh pepper, but no salt.  Secure the ends with a wood toothpick, this may take one or two for each bundle, depending on how tightly wrapped it is.  Toss them on your charcoal or gas grill and cook until the bacon is cooked to your liking, turning frequently.  Easy as that, and oh, so, delicious.
After (yum :)
