Ingredients

Instructions

  • Wash the asparagus, and cut or break off the tough ends at the bottom.
  • Wrap the asparagus spears tightly in bacon strips. You can either wrap the asparagus individually or in bundles of 3-5 asparagus spears.
  • Combine the maple syrup, olive oil, and seasoning in a bowl to create a glaze.
  • Use a pastry brush or the back of a spoon to brush the maple syrup glaze onto the asparagus and bacon bundles. Make sure to cover all sides thoroughly, including the bottom.
  • Place the asparagus with bacon in an air fryer basket. Air fry at 360 F / 180 C for about 10 minutes, or until the bacon is crispy. Flip the asparagus bundles halfway through cooking to allow them to cook evenly.

Notes

  • Avoid stacking bacon wrapped asparagus on top of each other in the air fryer basket, and leave some space in between each piece.
  • Feel free to adjust the seasoning to taste.
  • Leave some space between each asparagus bacon bundle in the air fryer. Avoid overcrowding the basket.
