Easy Side Dish Recipe

Everything tastes better wrapped in bacon. Am I right?!?! This Bacon Wrapped Asparagus is SO good! It is seriously delicious. I could make a meal out of this stuff. We both couldn’t get enough of it. I mean, asparagus and bacon baked in a sweet and savory sauce. How could it not be good?

How to Make Bacon-Wrapped Asparagus

This side dish is super easy to make. Start with trimming the asparagus. Wrap one piece of bacon around 3 to 4 asparagus spears. Place in shallow baking dish. In a small saucepan combine brown sugar, butter, soy sauce, garlic powder, and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and stir until sugar is dissolved. Pour mixture over asparagus bundles. Pop the tray in the oven and bake until the asparagus is tender.

  • The asparagus can be assembled ahead of time and refrigerated overnight. I wouldn’t pour the sauce over it since the sauce has butter and it might harden in the fridge.
  • The sauce only takes a couple of minutes to make; less time than it takes to preheat the oven.  
  • If the bacon isn’t as crispy as you would like, you can put the pan under the broiler for a few minutes.
