It also makes a lovely presentation the whole family will embrace. It’s an easy recipe that is especially welcomed during Spring and Summer when asparagus is in season and at flavor peak.

What’s great about asparagus is that it’s a naturally low-carb vegetable with only 2.4 grams of net carbs per 100 grams of asparagus.

It’s high in fiber, vitamins C, A, K, folate, and minerals and is also rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds, making it an excellent addition to your keto meal planner

By wrapping the asparagus with bacon, you add healthy fats and protein to the dish.

It makes the perfect appetizer or snack for anyone on a low-carb diet. And an elegant, tasty side dish for any occasion.

Here are the ingredients you need to make this bacon-wrapped asparagus, a wonderful vegetable option.

Note that the full printable recipe card, along with the nutritional facts, is at the bottom of the page.

  • Asparagus spears, trimmed. Choose firm bright colored asparagus that is medium-thick.
  • Bacon, center cut, thin slices cut in half. Don’t choose thick slices, as they will take too long to cook, won’t allow the bacon to crisp properly, and will overcook the asparagus in the process. Thinner bacon produces the best results.
  • Olive oil or avocado oil
  • Sea salt
  • Black pepper, freshly cracked pepper is best
  • Garlic powder

This recipe individually wraps each asparagus; the nutritional information listed reflects this. However, you can also wrap asparagus in bundles of two thin asparagus spears with a slice of bacon.

Both ways work well. As long as the spears are thin, the baking time will be about the same.

Flavor Variation

To change up the flavor, try these variations:

  • Add chipotle powder to the olive oil mixture for a smokey, spicy flavor profile.
  • Once the bacon wrapped asparagus stalks are baked, give them a very light drizzle of balsamic vinegar glaze.

How to Make Keto Bacon Wrapped Asparagus

Start by preheating the oven to 400°F. Then in a small bowl, you will combine the olive oil with the dry spices.

Then wash, dry, and trim the woody ends of each of the asparagus spears and cut each bacon slice in half lengthwise.

Next, brush each spear with the olive oil mixture and wrap the asparagus in bacon, starting at the bottom and spiraling up to the top.

Place the bacon-wrapped asparagus on a baking sheet with a wire rack seem down. A wire wrack allows for better airflow and will ensure the asparagus and bacon cook evenly and crisp up.

Bake for about 20-25 minutes or until the bacon is crispy and the asparagus is tender.

You can also bake on a parchment-lined baking sheet, but the asparagus and bacon will not be as crispy.

As you can see, this recipe is incredibly easy to follow and only takes a few minutes to prepare. Plus, it’s a great way to incorporate more vegetables into your diet while still enjoying the delicious taste of bacon.

Join Our Jesus And Keto Movement 

Our family came to the keto diet looking at it from a Christian perspective; it’s the filter we choose to see from.

When we decided to combine our Christian faith and the keto diet, we did so in hopes of finding lasting transformation.

To say we needed God’s intervention is putting it mildly. When we followed the Holy Spirit’s lead to embrace the ketogenic diet and combine it with our faith, we got on the path to fundamental transformation. 

If you are looking for a Christian group that is using the keto diet to transform their lives, we invite you to join our Private Facebook Group and see if it’s not the key you have been missing.
