Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Trim ends of asparagus stalks so they’re all roughly the same length. Divide asparagus into small bundles of 3 to 5 stalks each, depending on size of stalks. Wrap each bundle with one piece of bacon and place on a foil lined baking sheet. In a small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat, add seasoning of choice and soy sauce and stir until incorporated. Drizzle seasoned butter over each bacon-wrapped asparagus bundle and bake until bacon is cooked through, about 15 to 20 min. Transfer bundles to a serving platter and serve warm.
Makes a great holiday feast side. For a party platter snack, double the amount of bacon slices and wrap each individual asparagus stalk in 1 slice of bacon instead of making bundles.
