Delicious and simple! The asparagus is roasted to perfection and it becomes so tender and packed with flavor. This is the perfect side dish. Enjoy!
-2 lbs fresh asparagus, ends trimmed
-12 slices bacon
-1/2 cup packed brown sugar
-1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
-1 Tbs soy sauce
-1/2 tsp garlic powder
-1/4 tsp pepper
Preheat oven to 400 F.
Divide the asparagus into 12 bundles (about 6-7 spears to each bundle). Wrap each bundle into 1 slice of bacon (wrap it real tight). Place each bundle onto a baking sheet, securing the bacon under each bundle.
In a medium saucepan, combine all the sauce ingredients, mixing well. Bring mixture to a boil. Pour evenly over each asparagus-bacon bundle.
Bake in preheated oven for about 25 minutes or until bacon looks nicely cooked. Enjoy!
