Bacon Wrapped Asparagus Kebabs


A crowd favorite vegetable dish is bacon wrapped asparagus but this recipe puts it on a stick! Grilled bacon wrapped asparagus kebabs are a summer hit.

Kebabs are the ideal summer recipe. They are easy to prepare, use a grill instead of your hot oven and clean is a breeze! It’s my go-to meal when the weather turns warm. Just like my caprese chicken kebabs, this recipe takes the infamous bacon wrapped asparagus but slides it though a skewer. You don’t even need a fork!

This two ingredient recipe only uses asparagus and bacon. The bacon provides enough flavor and helps keep the asparagus juicy yet crisp. Once grilled, this dish gets a smoky, char-grilled flavor that is unbeatable.

How to make bacon wrapped asparagus kebabs

  1. Cut the ends off of the asparagus.
  2. Cut asparagus into 3 pieces.
  3. Cut each bacon strip 3-4 pieces.
  4. Wrap each asparagus and thread through the skewer. You could thread the asparagus unwrapped, followed by a scrunched ribbon of bacon.
  5. Grill over indirect heat for 6-8 minutes turning half-way through or until bacon is crispy.

    Preferred thickness of asparagus

    The thicker the asparagus, the easier it is to thread onto the skewer. Thin asparagus can snap as you try to thread it onto the kebab.

    If you are wrapping your asparagus with bacon, sometimes you can get away with using smaller stalks if that is all that is available in the produce section of the grocery store.

    Thin vs thick cut bacon

    Thin cut bacon is preferred if wrapping around a stalk of asparagus. It is easier to wrap compared to thick cut bacon.

    If you are alternating asparagus and bacon on your skewer and bunching up your bacon into a ribbon, you can get away with thick cut bacon.
