  • 24 stalks asparagus, trimmed
  • 8 slices medium-thick bacon


  1. Divide the asparagus into 8 bundles with 3 stalks each.
  2. Wrap one slice of bacon around each bundle, wrapping as evenly as possible so the bacon doesn’t overlap too much.
  3. Arrange the asparagus bundles in a single layer in the basket of your air fryer, putting the loose end of the bacon facing down to help keep it from unraveling. Work in batches if necessary.
  4. Fry at 390°F for 10 minutes.
  5. Use tongs to carefully remove the bacon-wrapped asparagus from the air fryer and place it on a plate lined with a paper towel. As with pan-fried bacon, it will continue to crisp as it cools.
