Bacon Wrapped Asparagus Recipe - fresh asparagus wrapped in bacon, topped with a sweet and savory sauce and baked. SO good! Can wrap asparagus in bacon ahead of time and refrigerate. Great for dinner parties and a quick weeknight side dish!!
Wrap one piece of bacon around 3 to 4 asparagus spears. Place in shallow baking dish. Repeat with remaining asparagus and bacon.
In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, combine brown sugar, butter, soy sauce, garlic powder and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and stir until sugar is dissolved. Pour mixture over asparagus bundles.
Bake 25 to 30 minutes, until spears begin to wilt and bacon is cooked.
