Tips for crispy bacon
The first time I made these Keto bacon wrapped asparagus, I wrapped my bacon around and the end result was overcooked asparagus and burnt bacon. To avoid this, I cut the bacon into strips and wrapped it around the asparagus so that the bacon didn’t overlap. This allows the bacon to cook quicker!
Flip your asparagus halfway through baking. Don’t skip this step, because this will ensure your asparagus is evenly crispy all the way around!
For extra crispiness, place your asparagus under a broiler until desired crispiness.
