1 pound asparagus, trimmed
12 ounces bacon
Salt and pepper to taste
• Wrap 2 to 3 slices of bacon around bundles of 4 to 5 asparagus. Cook over direct heat 1 to 2 minutes, until bacon begins to crisp up. Move to indirect heat, cover and cook an additional 5 to 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, and serve.
• Cook's note: If you want to turn this into a fully vegetarian dish, lose the bacon and toss the asparagus in vinaigrette.
