Serves 6-8

Leftovers make for an amazing breakfast or snack topped with a fried egg and are great in a sandwich or chopped into an omelet as well—but why would you have any leftovers? Adding one chive to each bacon strip before wrapping the asparagus spear also adds great flavor.


1 bunch asparagus, trimmed
1 (12-ounce) package bacon, preferably center-cut, halved lengthwise
1 teaspoon olive oil
Garlic salt, for serving
Black pepper, for serving


Preheat the oven to 350˚F. Wrap a bacon strip around each asparagus spear like a pinwheel, then set on a baking sheet. Roast for 15 minutes, flipping asparagus halfway through, the broil the bacon to crisp the bacon, a few minutes more. Arrange bacon-wrapped asparagus on a platter, and season with garlic salt and pepper.
