Bacon Wrapped Asparagus

This side dish is easy to prepare, looks appealing and tastes wonderful with or without the sauce. It was part of our Thanksgiving dinner this year.

2 lb. (48 spears) fresh asparagus, ends trimmed
12 slices bacon, uncooked
½ cup dark brown sugar
½ cup butter
1 Tbsp. soy sauce
½ tsp. garlic salt
¼ tsp. freshly ground pepper

1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
2. Combine sauce ingredients, reduce to a syrupy consistency and set aside.
3. Divide asparagus spears into 12 bundles of 4 spears each.
4 Wrap a slice of bacon around each bundle, starting ½" from bottom of tips.
5. Secure bacon-wrapped asparagus with a toothpick & arrange in baking dish.
6. Place in refrigerator for half an hour, then remove toothpicks.
7. Bake at 400°F for 25 to 30 minutes or until bacon looks fully cooked.
Serve sauce alongside asparagus bundles.
