Fire up the grill for the hottest veggie of the season. Whether it's cooked alone or wrapped in bacon, asparagus is a summer staple.

How to Grill Asparagus

  • Wash and trim asparagus spears.
  • Season as desired.
  • Grill asparagus. We do this a few different ways:
    • Directly on the grill rack. Place spears in a single layer on the grill rack and grill 4-7 minutes.
    • In a grill basket. Place asparagus in a single layer in a grill basket and grill 4-7 minutes.
    • In a foil pack. Place asparagus spears on a sheet of foil, season with oil and spices, and fold foil around aspargus to enclose. Place on the grill and cook 10-15 minutes total, flipping after 5 minutes.
    • In a bacon-wrapped bundle. Wrap one strip of bacon around 6-8 spears and place on the grill rack. Cook 7-9 minutes, turning often.

Asparagus tip: Any time you cook aspargus, try to use spears that are uniform in diameter to ensure all are done at the same time.
