2 / 2
  • 6 servings



  • 2 pounds fresh asparagus, ends trimmed
  • 12 slices bacon
  • 1⁄2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1⁄2 cup (1 stick) butter
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper


  • Preheat oven to 400 F.
  • Divide asparagus spears into 12 bundles. Carefully wrap 1 slice of bacon around each bundle, starting about 1⁄2 inch from bottom of tips. Secure bacon-wrapped spears with a toothpick, and lay bundles in a low-sided casserole dish.
  • In a medium saucepan, combine brown sugar, butter, soy sauce, garlic salt, and pepper. Bring mixture to a boil. Pour hot mixture over bundles in dish.
  • Roast in oven for 25 minutes, or until spears have begun to wilt and bacon looks fully cooked.
  • Remove toothpicks before serving. Get more recipes from Trisha Yearwood.
