Cream Cheese and Asparagus Bacontizers

Yields1 ServingTotal Time7 mins

 6 asparagus spears, chopped in half (Cut off about an inch of the bottom part of the stem – gets rid of the more bitter stuff)
 6 John F. Martin bacon slices, chopped in half and fat-trimmed as much as possible
 4 oz of cream cheese room temperature (if desired)
 ½ tsp garlic powder
 ½ tsp onion salt
1

Bring oven to 400ºF.

2

Boil your asparagus spears in lightly salted water for about 4 minutes, then flash cool in cold water. Set aside.

3

Fry your bacon lightly on each side, just enough for the meat to be cooked, set aside.

4

Mix together your cream cheese, garlic powder, and onion salt. It may help to let the cream cheese sit at room temperature for a while before mixing.

5

Spoon about a 1-2 teaspoons of the cream cheese mixture onto each bacon slice.

6

Place an asparagus piece on the bacon and roll it up. Simple as that.

7

Lastly, bake the bacontizers in the oven for about 3 minutes, just to crisp them up a bit. That’s it
