#BaconWrappedAsparagus + New #GrillPan from Cavetools

 For some reason, I was craving some asparagus so I asked my husband to buy me a bunch  when he went the other day.  I have a new  grill pan  here that I have to review so I thought of  grilling these babies.  I normally bake it but since it is summer, mine as well cook it outside.

I was a little worried that the asparagus will  dry out in the grill but it was still  very juicy and  the smokiness flavor really rock this  dish.
 I am glad there is still an abundant supply of asparagus from the store.  I can't wait to start harvesting  mine from the backyard, few more years and I will have some.
I was gonna make mashed potatoes but since I  am grilling outside, I decided to make potato wedges sand grilled them too.  I seasoned them with brown sugar bourbon Grillmate spices mix.  
 I normally  do single  asparagus when I bake it but since I am grilling, I put three, it was perfect.  Just a little  tip for flavoring the asparagus, before you roll the bacon, add some  dill, it made the asparagus so flavorfull.
 I was worried that I cut the potatoes a little thicker so I pan-fried them  for few minutes before putting it on the grill.
 Both the potatoes and the asparagus  turn out delicious. A lot of fat from the bacon was rendered and it almost burn  it even on a very low  heat setting.  I had to turn it off and  put foil under the  grill pan  to  stop the flame.
 I really underestimated the  fats that will come out from the bacon.  I initially thought of laying aluminum foil under the grill pan but though I could clean it easy.   WRONG!!  So my new grill pan  has a burned  part  that I am trying to  remove.   I use to be able to remove burn  stuff like this with vinegar but it did not work this time.    Any  tips on how to efficiently  remove it  with  using an abrasive cleaning  material?
Anyway, I like this grill pan because it is heavy duty, you can really  utilize it  in grilling. You can buy this  grill pan directly at Cavetools website or via Amazon.  You can use this Cave Tools Coupon Code GRILLPAN15 for a  15% Off savings.  For grilling master out there, this is a must have.  You can use it in preparing bacon and eggs for breakfast which reminds me  that this would be great when  camping.  You can use it to grill your veggies, steaks, chicken, and pork.  Aside from the burning issue which is a mistake on my part, I really  love this  pan.

I have had bacon wrapped asparagus in restaurants but I have never tried to make it. I am definitely going to try this.

I love asparagus. Actually my whole family does but I have yet to make bacon wrapped asparagus. Great idea! Love the look of this pan. Is it hard to clean? We have a couple of things we use but none of them look like this actually.

Melanie Walsh said...

I love my veggies! But they have never looked this good! This is going to be a huge hit at barbecues all summer long.

Christy G said...

Yum, this asparagus looks amazing. I should try to make some for my family. Seeing asparagus made me remember that my grandmother always grew asparagus in her garden. She would go outside and pick some whenever she wanted to make asparagus. Fresh was always the best.

Alli Smith said...

I love asparagus and bacon so I am definitely going to try to make this soon. I'll have to go pick up some asparagus.

I love asparagus, however, I've yet to get the kids to try it. I think I'm going to use your suggestion and try your recipe, they'll eat anything with bacon and they may not realize there's a veggie inside, lol.

Melissa Chapman said...

We are into are veggies in this home so any new way to enjoy asparagus is a great idea. There is never a bad way to enjoy bacon for so many people.

This would be a dish I would make for a few members of my family who really like asparagus. Asparagus wrapped in bacon I know they would love and enjoy.

Wow, this bacon wrapped asparagus looks easy to make with that kind of grill pan. It looks commercial and very sturdy.

I've never seen the Grill Pan before. That could be very helpful when grilling a good amount of dishes during the summer.

I HATED asparagus as a kid but eat it all the time as an adult. Amazing how your taste in food evolves as you get more mature. This BACON recipe really caught my attention. Absolutely going to have to try it out. Nice recipe!

Joanna Brittain said...

We love asparagus, and I've made it several ways, but never with bacon wrapped around it. I know my family would love it!

Glam Karen said...

It's a recipe that we definitely enjoy and I love making it because it's really easy! It's nice to have on its own or as a side as well. Sometimes we serve it as an appetizer!
