  2. Cut bacon slices in a half, widthwise.
  3. – Cut asparagus stalks into quarters.
  4. Lay one slice of bacon on a flat surface and add 4 pieces of asparagus at one end of the slice. Slowly wrap bacon around asparagus (in a rolling motion) and set aside. Repeat until all the bacon and asparagus have been used.
  5. Thread each skewer with bacon wrapped asparagus, cherry tomato, bacon wrapped asparagus, cherry tomato and finish with a shiitake mushroom.
