Asparagus Bundles

We made these for Easter and everybody loved them.  I got the recipe off of a Trisha Yearwood show.
Asparagus is starting to come up here good now so hope we get to make several more.

2 pounds fresh asparagus, ends trimmed
12 slices bacon
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Divide asparagus spears into 12 bundles.  Carefully wrap 1 piece of bacon around each bundle, starting about 1/2 " from the bottom of the tips.  Secure bacon wrapped spears with a toothpick.  Lay the bundles in a low sided casserole dish.

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.  Put into the oven and roast until the spears have begun to wilt and the bacon looks fully cooked.  About 25 minutes.  Remove toothpicks.

Depending on the size of spears for the time.
