Bacon-Wrapped Asparagus


Every once in a while, I’ll be making something aside from sushi (yes, I do cook aside from sushi! 🙂 ) and think, “hey, this might taste good in a maki roll!” Actually, Son said that, but it still resulted in a great tasting roll! I make bacon-wrapped asparagus every now and then, because Son loves it (as do I) and it’s a delicious way to get more vegetables (of course the bacon doesn’t cancel it out! Hehe.) …so if you just want to make bacon-wrapped asparagus, discard the sushi-making parts of the recipe. 😀

Sorry I have been almost completely absent lately… I’m in the middle of finals week right now, so I have had time for absolutely nothing aside from studying and writing papers! Ugh. I can’t wait to be done, but unfortunately I still have a couple of years to go before I graduate. Well, wish me lick for my last two finals! And if I don’t respond to your comments very quickly don’t despair, I’ll be back next week!

Makes 6 rolls, or 36-48 slices.

  • 6 sheets nori
  • 3 cups sumeshi
  • 12 stalks asparagus
  • 12 slices of bacon
Cooking Directions
  1. Cook sushi rice.
  2. Wash the asparagus.
  3. Cut off the bottom inch of the asparagus, and cut the remaining stalk into 3 inch pieces (you should get about two of these pieces from each stalk).
  4. Cut each slice of bacon in half. Roll each piece of asparagus in a slice of bacon.
  5. Put the bacon-wrapped asparagus in a frying pan over medium-high heat, and cook on all sides so the bacon is crispy.
  6. Roll the sushi. For your fillings, use 3 or 4 of the bacon-wrapped asparagus.
  7. Serve and enjoy!
