    1. Preheat the Oven:
      Preheat your oven to 200°C (400°F). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
    2. Prepare the Asparagus:
      Wash the trimmed asparagus spears and pat them dry. Toss them in olive oil, season with salt and pepper.
    3. Wrap with Bacon:
      Take a half-slice of bacon and wrap it tightly around each asparagus spear. Place them seam side down on the prepared baking sheet.
    4. Bake the Bacon Wrapped Asparagus:
      Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until the bacon is crispy and the asparagus is tender. Turn the asparagus halfway through baking for even cooking.
    5. Prepare the Glaze:
      While the asparagus is baking, prepare the glaze. In a small saucepan, combine balsamic vinegar, honey, minced garlic, salt, and black pepper. Simmer over low heat until the glaze thickens slightly, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
    6. Glaze the Asparagus:
      Once the bacon wrapped asparagus is cooked, brush the glaze generously over the top of each piece.
    7. Serve Hot:
      Transfer the glazed bacon wrapped asparagus to a serving platter. Optionally, drizzle any remaining glaze over the top. Serve hot and enjoy your flavorful Bacon Wrapped Asparagus with Honey Balsamic Glaze.
    Pro Tips
    • For extra flavor: sauté the onions and garlic until they’re aromatic and slightly caramelized.
    • Bacon Selection: Use thin-sliced bacon for easy wrapping and crispy texture after baking.
    • Glaze Consistency: The glaze should be thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Adjust by simmering longer for a thicker consistency.
    • Presentation: Arrange the asparagus neatly on the platter, drizzling the glaze artistically for an elegant presentation.
    • Serve with Dip: Offer a side of garlic aioli or a lemon herb dip for extra flavor options.
