Soul Food Saturday #36

Welcome to the last weekend before Christmas. I hope you're ready because time is flying! If you're finalizing your menu plan, especially the party foods, Bekki has a great idea for you today!

Bacon Wrapped Asparagus with Chipotle Mayo
2 lb fresh asparagus ends trimmed
12 slices turkey bacon, uncooked
1/2 c. Unsalted butter
1/2 tsp. Salt
1/2 tsp Granulated garlic
1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Divide asparagus spears into 12 bundles (2-3 pieces each). Wrap 1 piece of bacon around each bundle, starting 1/2" from bottom of the tips. Secure the bacon with a toothpick. Arrange bundles in a shallow baking pan.
Combine seasoning in a small bowl. Pour mixture over asparagus bundles.
Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until spears have begun to wilt and bacon looks fully cooked.
Chipotle Mayo
1 c. real mayo
3 chipotle peppers with 2 tbs. Adobo sauce
In a blender, add chipotles, and Adobo sauce. Blend until peppers are finely chopped and nearly smooth. Add mayo and blend until smooth. This recipe can easily be doubled, and lasts just as long as regular mayo when kept in closed container.
