Servings: 6 Prep 25 mins Total Time 50 mins


  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 6 slices bacon
  • 1 bunch asparagus, trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons extrta-virgin olive oil

Make It

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray; set aside. Arrange bacon between 4 sheets of paper towels on a plate. Microwave bacon on high (100%) power for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes or until partially cooked, but not brown. Let cool.

2. Cook asparagus in lightly salted boiling water for 1 minute; drain. Rinse with cold water to cool. Pat dry with paper towels.

3. Divide asparagus into 6 even piles. Wrap one slice of bacon around each bundle and secure with a toothpick. Place on prepared baking sheet. Bake, turning once or twice until the asparagus is soft and bacon is browned, 20 to 25 minutes.

4. In a small bowl, whisk together the orange juice, honey, and olive oil. Drizzle over the bundles.
