It’s Sunday-Funday people. An ideal Sunday is full of late morning z’s, pancakes, some outdoor time, meal-prep, and planning for the week. That is what a Sunday in the summer looks like, anyways! It’s Linley here and I love Sundays no matter what season it is, but it’s August and do not try tell me that you haven’t noticed all of the pumpkin spice memorabilia starting to pop up at Target stores across the globe.

Fall is right around the corner and that also means that game day (every Sunday in the fall) is also almost upon us. Yes, I know I know, not everyone is a football person. Yes, I bleed purple (SKOLE Vikes), but honestly, I mainly like game day because I get to hang out with my people and make delicious food—> like this bacon wrapped asparagus!

Yes, you will find these delicious healthier appetizers on the menu come game day, but this recipe was created out of our love for bacon wrapped things. We also thought that bacon wrapped asparagus would be delicious as a side dish like in our Sheet Pan Chicken Meal. If you like bacon, there is no need to wait until game day to make a batch of this bacon wrapped asparagus now! You can try it in the oven or on the grill. Either way is amazing!
