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

Bring oven to 400ºF.


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


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


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.


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


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


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