Bacon wrapped asparagus is delicious and addictive. This recipe has a thick, sweet sauce that's poured on top and caramelizes on the savory bacon. So good! We bet you won't be able to eat just one. If you want to dress up fresh asparagus, give this side dish a try. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
