Ashley's Story

Someone brought these to a 1st Communion party and they were delicious!


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

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Divide asparagus spears into 12 bundles (3-4 pieces each). Wrap 1 piece of bacon around each bundle, starting 1/2" from bottom of the tips. Secure the bacon-wrapped asparagus with a toothpick. Arrange bundle in a shallow baking pan.
Combine brown sugar and remaining ingredients in a medium saucepan; heat mixture to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Pour mixture over asparagus bundles.
Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until spears have begun to wilt and bacon looks fully cooked. Enjoy!

This recipe is AWESOME... everyone loved them... even the dogs gave it 2 puppy thumbs up! We enjoyed the marinade so much, I made a large batch of it and finished off a couple of pork rib racks. Precook pork ribs as you like... I cut mine into small sizes and slow cook them until fork tender. Slather the marinade over the ribs and finish in the oven by broiling. You must watch them closely as the brown sugar can burn. Naturally I made the asparagus bundles along w/garlic roasted red potatoes and beer bread. It was a HUGE hit!

I made these for a pool party on Sunday and my husband turned up his nose and flatly told me that no one would eat them. Well, the men loved them and my husband said he was glad I didn't listen to him! Delicious!
