Dress up fresh asparagus with brown sugar and bacon for a mouth-watering and beautiful snack or app. These can be prepared ahead of time and baked when needed.


  1. Preheat the oven to 400° F.
  2. Divide the asparagus spears into 12 bundles, about 3 to 4 sparser bundle. Carefully wrap 1 piece of bacon around each bundle, starting about ½ inch from the bottom of the tips. Secure the bacon-wrapped spears with a toothpick. Lay the bundles in a low-sided casserole dish.
  3. In a medium saucepan, combine the brown sugar, butter, soy sauce, garlic salt and pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil. Pour the hot sugar mixture over the asparagus bundles.
  4. Transfer the dish to the oven and roast until the spears have begun to wilt and the bacon looks fully cooked, about 25 minutes. Remove the toothpicks before serving.
