With Thanksgiving just a few weeks away, I am already prepping for what I will be serving for my Thanksgiving Feast. Every year we host Thanksgiving here at our house and while my Mother In Law is in charge of the bird – I take on doing all the side dishes. One that is topping the list – because it is as easy as it is delicious – is Bacon Wrapped Asparagus. Seriously, this can not GET any easier – in fact this one has been assigned to The Teen. Two ingredients plus my Ronco Ready Grill – voila! One Heathy Thanksgiving Side Dish down!
This recipe could not be more simple – you literally only need two ingredients! First thing you want to do is choose your favorite bacon. I use Applegate Sunday Bacon from Publix because I think it tastes the best AND as a bonus there are no added nitrates or sugar. Winning! Then all you need is fresh stalks of asparagus and an indoor grill like the Ronco Ready Grill. Simply wrap one piece of bacon around each stalk of asparagus, and place inside the grilling basket. Slide it inside and let cook 8-10 minutes – depending on how crispy you want your bacon. Remove and serve – it is that easy.
I had the pleasure of being on set for the taping of the Ronco Ready Grill Infomercial a few months ago, and I have loved using it ever since. The Ronco Ready Grill is the perfect size to make 1-4 meals in minutes. I have used it to quickly grill up meats and veggies – and of course bacon wrapped asparagus. The sides of the grill do not get hot, so I have no problem letting the girls cook their own meals with it – making after school snacks easy as can be. And clean up is as easy as wiping down the removable plates inside.
The Ronco Ready Grill would be a perfect gift for anyone on your holiday shopping list who is looking to eat healthier – without having to spend hours in the kitchen. I love mine and The Teen has already stated that she will want one when she heads off to college. *tear*
Happy Healthy Thanksgiving!!
