Bacon Wrapped Asparagus with Gruyere

Bacon Wrapped Asparagus with Gruyere

I had some leftover bacon and a whole pound of asparagus, and since puff pastry is probably just as bad for you as bacon, (if not worse), I decided to deconstruct my puff pastry with gruyere and asparagus recipe and make this instead. And it was delicious. Not that it would have been bad with just the bacon and asparagus but I know the addition of the other ingredients only made it better.

I do love asparagus. Although I do think I should start bringing scissors to the grocery store so I can snip off the tough ends right there and then and avoid having to pay for the parts I won’t be eating anyway. But then again armed with scissors I might be tempted to cut off only the asparagus tips – since that’s really the best part – I highly doubt the grocery store employees would appreciate that though.

    This sounds very tasty đŸ™‚ I assume it’s 1/4 pound of gruyere?
    We do something less fancy, which uses sliced ham (or sometimes prosciutto if we have thin young asparagus on hand, which cooks quickly) and sliced cheese draped over the bundles with the mustard inside. I’d like to try it this way, though.

    If you buy asparagus at a farmer’s market, it may be so fresh that it doesn’t need to be trimmed, but how long you can do that depends heavily on where you live. (Here it’s a pretty long time! Other places it’s just 3 weeks or so.)

      Thanks for picking up on the mistake in the recipe. It should say 1/4 pound. Your way sounds delicious too! Will have to try this with sliced ham next time!
