Recipe: Easy Bacon-Wrapped Asparagus

12:14 AM 33 Comments A+ a-

Believe me when I say that I'm one of those mudras who really can't cook. I just rely it in pacham  or pachamba-chambang luto. Though I know my grandparents and my dad are talented in the kitchen, I think the only thing that drives me to face the stove is the fact that my kids are waiting for me to put something at the table.

I'm thankful that my eldest isn't much of a picky eater. This easy baon recipe is one of her favorites. She can eat it with rice or with steak (her favorite). You might want to try this mudras for your next packed lunch, either for office or for your child's lunchbox.


Ingredients:
  • Asparagus
  • Bacon
  • Salt and Pepper (optional)
  • Toothpicks (optional)

Here's how to do it:
  1. Cut the asparagus into three if you want it to be completely covered with bacon or cut it into half for longer stems.
  2. Take your bacon strips and cut it in half. A whole strip would be too long and you won't be able to taste the asparagus inside. 
  3. If using maple-flavored bacon, no need to put salt and pepper. The bacon will already give you that salty flavor after cooking.
  4. Get a couple of asparagus and group it according to your preferred number of stems. Usually I get as much as 5 small pieces for my eldest.
  5. Roll the asparagus, blanket it with your bacon.
  6. Use the toothpick to secure the bacon when frying. Usually I do this when I need to fry it immediately. But in case you want to store it at the fridge first, the toothpick is optional.
  7. Fry it in a pan (non-stick is recommended). No need to add oil and let the bacon fats do its job.
  8. Serve with rice or steak.


That's it! Easy right? Even if you're in a hurry during your morning preps, it would take you no more than 20 minutes to do this. Try it mudras! This is one great recipe that could help you make your kids eat vegetables too. Got some other bacon ideas you want to share? I would love to hear it from you!

Oh, I do this but I only microwave it, not fry. And you're right about the salt. My first attempt at this was palpak because i sprinkled salt on the asparagus before wrapping it with bacon. It was too salty, lol!

Also in French Baker (I think) and it costs thrice as much compared to what you will shell out if you buy the ingredients and make it on your own. :)
