If you’re looking for the perfect and easiest side dish for Thanksgiving, or well really any time of year, you have to try my husbands version of the easiest bacon wrapped asparagus you can make. Yes, I said my husband. He’s the chef around here, not me. I stay out of the kitchen on Thanksgiving, it’s his domain. Be jealous. Anyway, this recipe is so easy, it’s almost like cheating because we use a box of fully cooked bacon. So easy I tell you. And delicious. And easy. Did I mention delicious and easy? Okay, you get it.
