We are not reinventing the wheel in this post. In fact, we are sharing an amazing recipe by American Chef Andrew Gruel.
To put our twist on it, we are upgrading the Maple Syrup to "Michael's Smoke Infused Maple Syrup".
Bacon Wrapped Scallops with Maple Butter
6 clices of bacon (center cut) par-cooked in an oven for 10 minutes at 350F
6 dry jumbo sea scallops
avocado oil, salt, fresh cracked pepper (save until end)
For the glaze:
1/2 cup Pure Maple Syrup
1/2 cup chicken stock or broth
4 tablespoons butter
1 lemon juiced and zested

Turkey Bacon Wrapped Water Chestnuts with Maple Syrup
1 package turkey bacon
2 cans water chestnuts
Michael's Smoke Infused Maple Syrup
Wrap bacon slices (whole or half as needed) around each water chestnut. Hold in place with a toothpick.
Place in baking dish and Bake @ 350F for 25-30 minutes until bacon is cooked.
Remove from over, brush with Maple Syrup. Return to the oven for another 10min or until maple bubbles and becomes sticky! Remove from oven and Enjoy.
But be careful - they're hot!
