Asparagus is one of my favorite vegetables. I love it on the grill, sautéed and roasted in the oven. So, you can imagine my excitement when I put it in the air fryer! Viola! SO crunchy and good!

As if I didn’t love it enough already, I decided to up my vegetable game and wrap it in bacon. Because seriously… who doesn’t love bacon?!?

My boys all love bacon. So if I add bacon it’s a given that they are going to eat it and be really excited about it!

This is a simple recipe and only requires 2 ingredients.

  • Bacon

What kind of bacon should I use?

For this recipe I used center cut bacon.

I typically prefer turkey bacon but I do not know how well turkey bacon would work for this recipe. My suggestion is using a good quality center cut bacon with minimal fat.

If you don’t like veggies I encourage you to try them in your air fryer or roast them… I think it really enhances the flavor and makes them so good!

What goes well with asparagus?

  • Salmon
  • Steak
  • Baked Chicken
  • Eggs… leftover asparagus is great for breakfast!

If you don’t have an air fryer you can also roast asparagus. I enjoy this recipe! Don’t be afraid to prepare vegetables in a different way than usual, or to try a new-to-you vegetable.
