1 pack Center Cut Bacon OR Turkey Bacon (need 10 slices)
1 bundle asparagus
1 tbsp butter (I like Kerrygold)
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
Wash and dry asparagus. Trim the ends off. Form groups of 3-4 asparagus spears (depending on how thick the asparagus is). Take one slice of bacon and wrap around asparagus bundles, lengthening the wrap so that it covers a large part of the asparagus. Lay on a greased or parchment paper lined baking sheet. In a saucepan, melt butter on medium low heat. Add pure maple syrup + smoked paprika. Stir together and allow to simmer for a few minutes. Brush each asparagus bundle with sauce. Cook in a 400 degree oven for 15 minutes. You can drizzle any remaining sauce. Makes 10 bundles.
