Ingredients

  • 1 lb asparagus
  • 12 pieces center cut bacon
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoons ground black pepper

Instructions

  • Wrap 3-4 asparagus stalks with one piece of bacon.  Continue making bundles until no more bacon. 
  • In a small bowl, mix together melted butter, brown sugar, salt and pepper. 
  • Spray air fryer basket with non- stick spray. Brush brown sugar mixture on each asparagus bacon bundle.
  • Place 4-5 bundles in air fryer basket and cook at 390 degrees for 10 minutes. 
    Remove and serve, cook remaining bundles. 

Notes

  • Use center cut or thin sliced bacon. Thicker bacon will not crisp up as nice. 
  • Don't over crowd the air fryer. I usually cook 4-5 bundles in at a time.
