Cook Time:
Total Time:


1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons reduced sodium soy sauce
1 teaspoon sriracha, optional
2 pounds asparagus spears, trimmed
2 tablespoons olive oil
freshly ground black pepper, to taste
6 slices bacon
1 teaspoon sesame seeds


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly oil a 9×13 baking dish or coat with nonstick spray.

In a small bowl, combine butter, brown sugar, garlic, soy sauce and Sriracha, if using; set aside.

Lightly coat asparagus with olive oil; season with pepper, to taste.

Divide asparagus into 6 bundles, wrapping each bundle with a slice of bacon to secure the spears together.

Place asparagus bundles in a single layer into the prepared baking dish. Top with butter mixture.

Place into oven and bake until bacon is crisp and asparagus are tender, about 15-20 minutes.

Serve immediately, garnished with sesame seeds, if desired.
