Bacon Wrapped Asparagus

A delicious and simple recipe to make. Feel free to use Prosciutto or Pancetta instead of Bacon. ChefGail's preference was to use locally smoked bacon from organics or Farm Fresh producers typically available at Farmer's Market.

Recipe Notes

When using locally harvested Edgar Farms Asparagus from Innisfail, all parts of the stalk are ripe and not woody, so you do not have to break or waste the stock. It's so fresh that you can eat it from the 1 lb. bunch. So while it might cost a bit more than your grocery store, you are buying asparagus this is all used and none thrown away and it's picked just a day before it appears at the market.
