Ingredients
  • 2 pounds fresh asparagus, ends trimmed
  • 12 slices bacon
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Divide the asparagus spears into 12 bundles. Carefully wrap 1 piece of bacon around each bundle, starting about 1/2 inch from the bottom of the tips. Secure the bacon-wrapped spears with a toothpick. Lay the bundles in a low-sided casserole dish.

In a medium saucepan, combine the brown sugar, butter, soy sauce, garlic salt and pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil. Pour the hot sugar mixture over the asparagus bundles. Transfer the dish to the oven and roast until the spears have begun to wilt and the bacon looks fully cooked, about 25 minutes. Remove the toothpicks before serving.

Easy, tasty, fast. BUT, I want to gobble down the sauce with a spoon! So good, and it received rave reviews from assembled guests. You, GO, girl! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Best asparagus ever! My kids love it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Fantastic! This is now a family favorite. I made it again Thanksgiving along with her broccoli salad for our green sides. With the asparagus, we prefer 20 min. baking time and then run it under the broiler to brown the bacon up a bit. item not reviewed by moderator and published
SO YUMMY. The "sauce" is to die for and even my brothers who have always hated asparagus were asking for 2nds and 3rds!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published

Tried for the first time last Christmas. Just amazing. The whole family wants these for all the gatherings. I just happened to use thin slice bacon the first time I made it...works the best for crisping...also, I pour off half the bacon/juice build-up about 10 mins before done :) item not reviewed by moderator and published

Can I give it more than 5 stars? This was amazing. I did not want to share. SO GOOD! Change nothing. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Ok, I'll admit that I have not liked many of Tricia's recipes. This one is an absolute winner. I served these for Easter dinner, and there were none left, and I had to copy the recipe for everyone. I used only 6 asparagus to a bundle, and a half piece of bacon. You do need to stir the sauce and baste during the cooking process. This is an outstanding recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
