- 2 lbs asparagus spears, ends trimmed
- 12 slices of bacon (*optional)
- ½ cup light brown sugar
- ½ cup butter
- 1 Tbsp soy sauce
- ½ tsp garlic salt
- ¼ tsp black pepper
Preheat oven to 350ºF. Rinse and trim ends of spears.
*If using bacon, wrap one slice of bacon around 3-4 spears. Place asparagus in baking dish; set aside. In medium saucepan combine remaining ingredients until boiling, stirring occasionally. Pour over spears in glass dish. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until spears have begun to soften or bacon has fully cooked. Wilted spears indicate they’re overdone.
