Put cold bacon in a pan set over medium-low heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until fat has rendered out and bacon is crisp. Remove bacon with a slotted spoon to paper towels to drain, and pour off all but 2 tablespoons of the bacon fat from the pan. Place pan back on heat and add garlic and asparagus. Sauté until asparagus is softened, about 5 to 7 minutes. Set aside to cool slightly.
