Recipe Ingredients

  • 8 slices Bacon
  • 1 tablespoon Flour, For rolling out dough.
  • 1 packet of Crescent Roll Dough
  • 1 bunch Asparagus, about half of a pound, woody ends removed.
  • 1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 1 large Egg, egg wash
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan, freshly grated


1. Preheat oven to 400º. On a large baking sheet with a wire rack placed on top, lay bacon. Bake until bacon is cooked but still pliable, about 20 minutes.

2. Increase oven heat to 425°. Line a large sheet pan with parchment paper.

3. On a lightly floured surface, roll the puff pastry out to a large rectangle. Square off edges and cut the rectangle into 8 even squares.

4. Toss asparagus in olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

5. Brush each square of puff pastry with egg wash. Place a slice of cooked bacon on top, followed by 3 to 4 stalks of asparagus and a sprinkle of Parmesan. Wrap bacon around asparagus and cheese, then wrap puff pastry around the bacon-asparagus bundle, overlapping the puff pastry ends to seal.

6. Brush each puff pastry with more egg wash. Bake until puff pastry is golden and puffed, about 12 minutes.
