Bacon Wrapped Asparagus
- 1 lb fresh asparagus
- 4 slices bacon (You may prefer to precook bacon at 350 for 5-7 min. This will shorten bake time and asparagus will be crisper.)
- ¼ cup butter
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- 1 ½ teaspoon soy sauce
- ¼ teaspoon garlic salt
- ¼ teaspoon ground pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Trim asparagus ends. Divide asparagus into 4 bunches.
Wrap 1 piece of bacon around each bunch starting about ¼ inch from ends. Secure bacon with a toothpick.
Place the asparagus bunches in a 2 lb Round Stoneware Baking Dish.
In a small saucepan combine the butter, brown sugar, soy sauce, garlic salt and pepper. Bring mixture to a boil. Pour mixture over asparagus bunches.
Bake approximately 20-25 minutes or until bacon is done.
Remove toothpicks before serving.
