Ashley's notes for this recipe:
This is a crowd pleaser! I always make way too much and somehow never make it home with extras ;)

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!!

This looks real good. My hubby and I live and travel in our motor-home we love to entertain. I am going to try this and serve at the next gathering. The only thing differ is I will have to bake my bacon I don't have a broiler in my motor-home. but I am sure it wouldn't matter.

What the heck is "EVOO"?
user Samantha Lyons-Pauley mrsp1217 - Dec 16, 2011
I figured it out - 'Extra Virgin Olive Oil.' Just a suggestion... I would edit your recipe to just say 'olive oil'. Maybe put the EV in front of it, if you want to make sure that Extra Virgin is used.
