- 1 pound fresh asparagus ends trimmed
- 5-6 slices bacon
- 1/4 cup light brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1-1/2 teaspoons soy sauce
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- freshly ground pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease a baking sheet.
Divide asparagus into five or six bundles, depending on the size of your asparagus, and carefully wrap a piece of bacon around each bundle. Place the bundles in a casserole dish.
Combine the remaining ingredients in a small sauce pan and bring to a boil over medium high heat.
Pour this mixture over the asparagus bundles and place the dish in the preheated oven
Bake for about 20 minutes, then increase the heat to broil and bake for 2-3 minutes watching carefully so they don’t burn.
Remove from oven and cool before serving.
