Steps

1. Prepare puff pastry

Measure flour and salt in a food processor or in a large bowl. Cut butter cubes in my pulsing several times until the dough looks like coarse sand. You may also do this by hand in a regular bowl and with a pastry blender. Add water a little bit a time and continue processing dough until it forms a ball. If you feel like you need more water, add a little more at about 1 tbsp at a time.

6. Assemble bacon-asparagus bundles

To make the bundles, wrap bacon around seasoned asparagus. Sprinkle gruyere, about 2 -3 tablespoons per bundle and place bacon wrapped asparagus on top. Lift two opposite corners of the puff pastry squares and wrap them around the asparagus and press to seal. Transfer for parchment lined baking sheet.
