Bacon Wrapped Garlic Scapes

This is a super-easy recipe.  The finished scapes are fairly mild in garlic flavour.  We find they have just a touch of asparagus to them! 

You’ll need:

•12 eight inch long tender pieces of garlic scapes, peeled

•12 pieces of thin-cut bacon

Tightly wrap each of the scapes with one piece of bacon, spiraling down the scape as you go. When all the scapes have been wrapped, heat a heavy skillet over medium heat and then add the scapes.  

Cook the scapes until the bacon browns on one side and then turn them. Cover the pan with a lid (this helps to ensure the scapes inside the bacon are well-cooked), removing the lid and turning the scapes as needed until the bacon is browned on all sides. 

Sprinkle with coarse sea salt or shredded parmesan cheese if desired.

Remove the scapes, drain on a paper towel and serve.
