Bacon ... on the grill?
My sister had a little get-together and we planned to make rib eye steaks with bacon-wrapped asparagus. Since my boyfriend is the "master griller" he decided it would be a good idea to pre-cook the bacon a bit before wrapping the asparagus -- on the grill! (Don't try this at home!) The project started out ok until bacon grease began dripping onto the coals. It quickly caught fire and engulfed the grill in flames about 4 feet high! (If you're ever trying to light a bonfire for fireplace, just use bacon!) Once we got the fire under control the bacon was charred and black; hillarious! After that experiment gone bad, we decided to broil the bacon-wrapped asparagus in the oven instead and it turned out fantastic! DO try this at home ... maybe with a drizzle of hollandaise sauce - YUM!
