The BEST Asparagus EVER!

Ok, so I have been working on trying to convince Robert to try asparagus... again. It is getting into the season when asparagus comes on sale.. so this was the perfect time to try it!

Apparently his first try, he didn't approve of them. Usually my man loves to try everything, but it was difficult to get him to give in. I found a great recipe for asparagus (I can't remember from where but when I do find it again, I'll post up the link!). The sauce.. well it is to die for. Robert was dipping his chicken in it also!

You will need for the Best Asparagus Ever!
A bundle of asparagus
1/2cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/4tsp pepper
1/2 tsp garlic salt (i used garlic powder with a tad of salt)
1 tbsp soy sauce

Soooo simple! Preheat your oven for 400. Take a few asparagus, I used 2 at a time, and wrap them in bacon and put them in a baking dish. Then, combine the brown sugar, butter, soy sauce, garlic salt, and pepper in a pan and bring to a boil on the stove. Pour this delicious mixture over the asparagus. Put this in the oven for 25 minutes. The result? PERFECT ASPARAGUS!

It was amazing - the asparagus was soooo soft. The combination of the bacon, asparagus and sweet sauce... its heaven. I can't rave enough. This is man approved!
I'm actually thinking of using this sauce for other things too.

Try it too and let me know if you liked it as much as I do!
