This is always a hit with our group.

-1 bunch of fresh asparagus
-1 lb of your favorite bacon
-olive oil

Clean and cut the asparagus. Drizzle a small amount of olive oil on the asparagus and season to your liking, I use kosher salt and black pepper. Take 4-5 pieces in one hand and 1 piece of bacon in the other. Start the bacon at the bottom and hold tight with your thumb while tightly wrapping it up the asparagus stalks (make sure you overlap part of the starting end tightly and you won't need any tooth picks to keep your bacon in place). Interlock the bacon between the top of the stalk to hold the wrap. Drizzle a small amount of olive oil down the center of the stalks.

You can cook these directly on the grill over med to med/high heat or on an electric skillet or over an open fire on a grate or in a cast iron skillet. Turn every so often until you bacon is browned on all sides. Remove from heat and enjoy.

Variation on the above.
I sometimes will add some chicken to the above.

Pound out a half of a chicken breast until thin and flat and season to your liking. Follow the above except wrap the asparagus with chicken and then bacon (may take two pieces of bacon to cover). Cooking time for this is a bit longer, but it tastes great.

Here is a picture of both being cooked.
