BACON Wrapped Asparagus

I promise I’ll be posing crafting soon! I’ve been working on so many things! But for now, more food.

One thing (among many) that’s so great about the the ketogenic diet is that bacon is not only accepted, but encouraged. Granted, you don’t want to gorge yourself on it, that’s not healthy. But the recipes and possibilities are endless. Tonight I tried asparagus wrapped in bacon, and you guys, IT WAS TO DIE FOR. The only bad thing about the recipe is that the “marinade” it’s cooked in has brown sugar in it. You could probably leave it out and it would be fine, but the little sweet flavor it adds is perfect.

Here’s how to make it: Wash and cut your asparagus. I used 4 sprigs per slice of bacon and wrapped it up and placed on a pan. Melt stick of butter in a sauce pan, add dash of garlic salt and pepper, and 1/2 cup brown sugar. Bring to a boil, then pour over asparagus. Bake at 400 degrees until bacon is done.

I promise you will love it. I plan to make this again soon, but I’ll nix the brown sugar next time.
