Amazing Maple Bacon Wrapped Asparagus
This is a crowd pleaser! I always make way too much and somehow never make it home with extras ;)
olive oil, extra virgin
onion powder, garlic powder
Rinse and cut the asparagus to about 4 inch tips, then toss asparagus in large mixing bowl with EVOO, salt/pepper, garlic, and onion powder
Cut the bacon package in half to make the pieces skinnier. Then wrap the bacon tightly from the tip, leaving as little green as possible
Lay 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.
Broil 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)
Remove from cookie sheet and lay on paper towels to remove excess grease
Very lightly drizzle a little bit of syrup over the asparagus after arranging on a platter... ENJOY!!
