"Very easy, versatile, and classy appetizer with a kick. Easy clean-up too. Garlic salt and red pepper can be omitted if they don't complement the main dish."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Arrange bread slices on a baking sheet.
  2. Toast bread in the preheated oven until lightly golden, about 5 minutes.
  3. Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned but still pliable, about 8 minutes. Drain bacon slices on paper towels.
  4. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add asparagus and cook uncovered until bright green, about 2 minutes. Drain in a colander and immediately immerse in ice water for several minutes to stop the cooking process. Drain.
  5. Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir asparagus in hot butter under tender, about 5 minutes. Cut asparagus into pieces that will fit the bread slices. Season with garlic salt; wrap with bacon slices.
  6. Arrange bacon-wrapped asparagus on toasted bread slices. Cover with mozzarella cheese slices. Sprinkle red pepper flakes on top.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven until mozzarella cheese is melted and lightly browned, 3 to 5 minutes.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Substitute Monterey Jack or Muenster cheese for the mozzarella if desired.

This is quite delicious. I skipped the butter part of the recipe and left out the garlic salt. I did add red peppers though. Thank you for the recipe.
