Trim the tough ends off the asparagus spears, cutting so the spears are the same length. If the asparagus has tough outer skin, peel the spears starting halfway down and to the end. (Most asparagus doesn’t need to be peeled.)
Tightly wrap each asparagus spear with ½ slice of bacon and place the spears on the prepared wire rack set over the baking sheet.
Bake at 400°F for 10 minutes. Rotate the pan and flip the bacon-wrapped spears over.
Bake an additional 8-10 minutes or until the bacon has crisped. If needed, set the oven to broil and broil 1 minute. Watch closely.
