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

Directions Step-By-Step

1
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
2
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
3
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.
4
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)
5
Remove from cookie sheet and lay on paper towels to remove excess grease
6
Very lightly drizzle a little bit of syrup over the asparagus after arranging on a platter... ENJOY!!

Holy smokes this looks good! Samantha, you need to watch more Rachel Ray. :) She always, always refers to extra virgin olive oil as EVOO and it has come into the foodie lexicon.
