Description

This recipe has rapidly became one of our very favorite all-time dishes. Brown sugar, soy sauce, butter and love come together to make this one very special dish.

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds Fresh Asparagus, Ends Trimmed
  • 12 slices Bacon
  • ½ cups Light Brown Sugar
  • 1 stick Butter
  • 1 Tablespoon Soy Sauce
  • ½ teaspoons Garlic Salt
  • ¼ teaspoons Pepper

Preparation

Preheat oven to 400ºF.

Divide the asparagus spears into 12 bundles. Wrap 1 strip of bacon around each bundle, leaving tips and ends exposed. Lay the bundles in a casserole dish.

In a saucepan combine the remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil over medium heat; pour over asparagus bundles. Place in the oven and bake for 25 to 35 minutes until bacon is nicely browned.

This is amazing! I’ve made it twice now and my husband loves them. I made them with giant asparagus as well (wrapped only 1 giant asp) and it was great! Also, I microwave to mix the sauce and it still tastes great with less dishes and time used.

My neighbor gave me the recipe and I loved it so much I searched TK to see if it was already posted. The recipe halves easily. I only had maple bacon on hand and it was good. Also couldn’t find my garlic salt so just used a little granulated garlic and skipped the salt since I used salted butter. I flipped my spear bundles halfway through cooking to make sure both sides got sauce. I think I could eat 6 bundles alone! LOL
