Here's the best recipe for making bacon wrapped asparagus. These are bite-sized, so conveniently easy to eat and serve at parties (you won't need a fork and knife for this), and they're stuffed with a tasty cream cheese filling that's low carb and keto friendly.
12 spears asparagus 6 slices bacon cut in half widthwise Cream Cheese Mixture: 3 ounces cream cheese 1 ounce (about 1/3 cup) shredded cheddar cheese 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Cook bacon in a wide pan over medium heat until some of the fat is rendered but the slices are still soft and pliable. Drain the bacon on paper towels.
Preheat the oven to 400 F. Prepare a baking sheet lined with foil and fitted with a wire rack.
Trim the asparagus spears by cutting off the tough woody ends so you’re left with about 6 inches. Cut each trimmed spear into 3 equal pieces, and put these 3 pieces side by side to form a bundle.
Microwave cream cheese until very soft and easily mixed, about 15 seconds. Stir with cheddar cheese and garlic powder until well-mixed.
Spread about 1 teaspoon of the cream cheese mixture onto each bundle of 3 asparagus pieces, and wrap with a slice of bacon. Place the bundles with the seam side facing down on the wire rack.
Bake at 400 F until the bacon is crispy and any exposed cream cheese is browning, 20 to 25 minutes. Serve while hot.
