Dale's Bacon Wrapped Asparagus

 1 tbsp brown sugar
 1.50 tbsp olive oil
 1 tbsp Dale's Seasoning
 1.50 tbsp toasted sesame oil
 1 garlic clove, minced or pressed
 1012 slices bacon
 2 bunch of asparagus, about 20-25 spears, trimmed
 1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds

To begin makes Dale's Bacon Wrapped Asparagus, preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cook bacon in batches in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until just beginning to brown but is still pliable, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels. Cut bacon in half crosswise. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place a wire rack on top. Spray the rack with nonstick spray.


Next, in a small bowl, whisk together dale's Seasoning, brown sugar and garlic. Set aside. Wrap half a piece of bacon around the center of each asparagus spear tightly; secure both ends of bacon with toothpicks.


Then, place on prepared rack. Brush spears thoroughly with the prepared marinade. Repeat.


Bake until asparagus is very tender and bacon is crisp, about 20 minutes. Remove toothpicks and place on a serving platter; sprinkle with sesame seeds.


Finally, serve warm.
