Whenever we go to Disneyland, we like to grab a quick order of bacon wrapped asparagus at the Bengal Barbecue in Adventureland. Nicknamed Bengal BBQ Safari Skewers, these delicious little snacks are the perfect pick-me-up during a day at the park.
This bacon & asparagus appetizer is so easy to make at home. All you need is a pack of bacon and a bunch of asparagus. I like to cut the bacon in half before wrapping the asparagus. Sometimes, depending on the bacon, you can even cut it into thirds and still have enough to wrap around each piece of asparagus.
The key is to have a thin layer of bacon that crisps up nicely in the fryer. You can also bake these on a cookie sheet in the oven at 400 F for about 20-25 minutes.
