Bacon-Wrapped Asparagus

by Sheryl

For years, I have made this baked baked asparagus wrapped recipe, and I still had to put it on the blog. It was about time to change that. I realized that the asparagus was often smooth before the bacon had the opportunity to crisp. Then I found this recipe and it’s been one of my favorite asparagus and bacon recipes ever since.¬†This easy-to-wrap bacon asparagus in the oven contains bacon stuff. All people love the easy appetizers of asparagus and bacon.

Asparagus is delicious by itself, but it is an irresistible culinary combination when you add bacon to the mix. These bundles of asparagus are so good that I often serve as the main course instead of a side dish. The recipe begins with fresh stalks of asparagus. I find the thicker asparagus twigs here work best because when you’re cooking bacon, they’re mushy if you use thin ones. Make sure that you share this recipe with your family.

Ingredients:

2 lb fresh asparagus, ends trimmed
12 slice bacon, uncooked
1/2 c light brown sugar
1/2 c butter
1 Tbsp soy sauce
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper

Directions:

1. Preheat the oven of about 400 degrees C.

2. Divide the asparagus spears into 12 bundles. Wrap 1 piece bacon around each bundle beginning 1/2 inch from the bottom of the tips. Put a toothpick on the bacon-wrapped to help the wrap stick. In a shallow baking pot, arrange the bundle.

3. In a medium casserole, combine the brown sugar and other ingredients; stirring occasionally the mixture in medium heat. Pour the mixture in the asparagus bundle.

4. Cook the bacon for approximately 25 to 30 minutes or until the spears are wilted.

This recipe works best with regularly cleaned bacon, and you take a lot more time to prepare thick and are at risk for overcooking your asparagus. The bacon must also be cooked and asparagus wrapped.
