This is a crowd pleaser! I always make way too much and somehow never make it home with extras ;)

Ingredients

1 bunch
asparagus, fresh
1 pkg
center cut bacon
drizzle of pancake syrup
2 Tbsp
olive oil, extra virgin
1 tsp
onion powder, garlic powder
1 tsp
salt and pepper

Step-By-Step

1Rinse and cut the asparagus to about 4 inch tips, then toss asparagus in large mixing bowl with EVOO, salt/pepper, garlic, and onion powder
2Cut the bacon package in half to make the pieces skinnier. Then wrap the bacon tightly from the tip, leaving as little green as possible
3Lay on nonstick cookie sheet with the free end of the bacon down and add fresh cracked pepper to the bacon. Broil on the bottom rack in the oven.
4Broil on bottom rack until bacon starts to brown and sizzle (about 5-7 minutes) flip all pieces over gently with tongs and repeat (5 more minutes)
5Remove from cookie sheet and lay on paper towels to remove excess grease
6Very lightly drizzle a little bit of syrup over the asparagus after arranging on a platter... ENJOY!!
