Enjoy perfectly crispy bacon, wrapped around tender and delicious asparagus spears with this simple air fryer side dish recipe.

This is a simple recipe that speeds up the process of cooking and rendering the bacon, making it a faster side dish to get on the table!

Start with cleaning and trimming the ends of your asparagus. Pat it dry and coat in olive oil, salt, and pepper. You can add some garlic powder here too. 

Bundle 3-4 asparagus stalks together and use thin cut bacon. Wrap it around the center and then tuck the ends under. 

Place the bacon wrapped asparagus seam side down in a single layer. Cook at 370 F. to allow the bacon fat to render and the bacon to get crispy. 

Allow the bacon to fully cook and brown. Be cautious of the bacon fat! The asparagus should be tender and lightly browned. 

Serve with BBQ ranch dressing and your favorite main dish (like steak, chicken or ham). Full recipe is linked below!
