Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Blanch the asparagus until it is barely cooked and still crisp, 2 to 4 minutes. When done, plunge the asparagus into ice water to stop the cooking. When cool, trim the asparagus to 8-inch lengths. Wrap a bundle of 6 asparagus spears with six strips of bacon, side by side, securing each slice with a toothpick. The bacon should be wrapped around twice so that there are two layers.
  3. Trim the enoki mushrooms, and separate into 12 pieces. Stuff each enoki piece with four pieces of shiitake. Wrap each bundle with a slice of bacon, wrapping around twice, and secure with a toothpick. Place the bundles on a wire rack placed over a baking sheet.
  4. Roast in preheated oven for 6 minutes, then flip the bundles over, and cook for another 4 to 6 minutes, until the bacon is brown and crisp.
  5. To serve, remove all 24 toothpicks, and slice the asparagus bundles between the bacon. Drain on paper towels for a moment before serving.

Easy prep, taste great! I cooked my bacon for a few minutes in the microwave beforehand, sprinkled it with applewood seasoning, wrapped it and threw it on the grill... big hit... thanks!!!

I've made these twice and though very tasty I had trouble getting the bacon done enough without crisping the asparagus.

it was not to easy to make. the results are very good though. i suggest using broil temps in the oven with a close eye.

This is absolutely wonderful! I love asparagus and mushrooms already and who doesn't like bacon? What a wonderful marriage of ingredients. Thanks to the submitter of this recipe from someone who actually made it and ate it! It was a house-wide success!!

Try this with a little maple syrup as a glaze, before baking or grilling.
