5 from 2 reviews

  • Yield: 2 1x


  • 10 stalks asparagus
  • 10 rashers of streaky bacon
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Pinch salt
  • Pinch black pepper


  1. Cut about about 3cm off the base end of the asparagus to get rid of the woody, fibrous parts. If you want to taste the difference, cut a tiny piece from the very base and taste it, then a piece from the stalk you're using. There should be a marked difference in taste and texture; that being the main stalk tastes good raw and the woody end is fibrous and tastes bitter.
  2. Toss the asparagus in the olive oil, salt and pepper.
  3. Wrap each stalk of asparagus in one rasher of bacon.
  4. Air fryer method: Preheat your air fryer to 160c and then cook for 9 minutes.
  5. Oven method: Preheat oven to 170c and cook on a wire rack tray for 18 minutes.
  6. Serve with poached eggs and grilled sourdough for a fantastic Sunday brunch.
