Bacon Wrapped Sesame Asparagus
1 bunch of asparagus, about 20-25 spears, stems removed
4-5 slices bacon
1 1/2 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 Tbsp sesame oil
1 1/2 Tbsp brown sugar
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 Tbsp (or more) toasted sesame seeds
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminium foil and place a wire rack on top. Spray the rack with non-stick spray. In a small bowl, whisk together oils, brown sugar and garlic. Set aside.
Bunch together 5-6 asparagus spears and tightly wrap a piece of bacon around the bundle. Place on the wire rack seam-side down. Continue with all asparagus spears. Using a pastry brush, a spoon or even your hands, brush the spear bundles throughly with the oil/sugar mixture. Give each bundle a hefty sprinkle of sesame seeds. Roast for about 30-45 minutes or until bacon is crispy.
These should just be called Asparagus Awesomeness!!! They were really, really good and they looked very pretty.
