Bacon Wrapped Asparagus

Is there anything that can’t be made better when wrapped in bacon?  I think not!


I found this lovely recipe on a new food blog I am following.   My Five Men



  • 2 pounds asparagus
  • 1 pound bacon
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


I gathered 4-5 asparagus together and wrapped the bundle in a slice of bacon and placed on a shallow jelly roll pan.


Mix together 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup soy sauce.


Spoon the soy sauce/ brown  sugar over the bundles.  Drizzle olive oil over the tips and sprinkle with salt and pepper.


Stick in a preheated 375 degree oven for 30-40 minutes.  Flip to high broil and finish crisping the bacon.  (about 5 minutes).

  1. Oh this looks pretty yummy. I’ll wait until the asparagus here in the region is ready for harvesting. It’s in April til June. It’s hard to wait but I can stand it. 😉 And I love to prepare the asparagus in the oven, too. The taste is so much better then. Have a lovely day!
