So it is,
My last post in 2007,
Proudly present you this simple and delicious appetizer,
And wishing you a fabulous Happy New Year!
Bacon Wrapped Asparagus-
8 green asparagus
8 slices of cured bacon
Extra virgin olive oil
Freshly ground black pepper
Turn the oven to broil.
Rinse the asparagus,
Remove the tough skin near the stem with a peeler,
I just carefully run my knife through it,
Too lazy to wash the peeler.
*Don't forget to trim the hard leaves too (the semi-red colored part)
For wrapping the asparagus,
Starting from the stem,
Use one slice of bacon and circles one asparagus all the way to the top.
Place the wrapped asparagus in a baking dish,
Remember to put the end of the bacon wrap side down.
Drizzle some olive oil, small pinch of salt, and some freshly ground pepper.
Transfer to the oven and cook till the bacon turned slightly brown on all sides,
Don't forget to turn the asparagus once every few minutes,
We want evenly cooked bacon, not a charcoal bacon on one side!
