Turkey Wrapped Asparagus Spears

I am never sure what to bring to a party. Something that is delicious, different, impressive and healthy.  Not a run of the mill vegetable or cheese and cracker tray.  Not your colorful fruit tray… 

We love asparagus and have always like bacon wrapped asparagus spears so I decided to clean them up! Asparagus wrapped in bacon is so good. Swapping out the bacon for thin strips of smoked turkey breasts cleaned this appetizer up nicely without losing that smoky flavor. My husband didn’t even realize that I switched out the bacon for turkey!  

These delectable spears disappeared quickly!  It is healthy and makes a beautiful presentation.  This appetizer is also quick and easy to put together.  It is a great choice to serve or bring to a party and stay on track with a healthy eating plan.  It can be easily incorporated into the 21 Day Fix Plan.

Turkey wrapped asparagus spears do not require a lot of ingredients – asparagus spears, turkey and a little olive oil.  I prefer using thin asparagus spears rather than the thick ones as they are usually tenderer.  I also purchase nitrate free smoked turkey when I can find it.  Thinner slices of turkey work better than thicker.  However, make sure it is sliced thin but not shaved or the turkey will fall apart..  By lining the baking sheet with foil then spraying it with cooking spray (olive oil or coconut oil) clean up becomes effortless as well.Turkey Wrapped Asparagus Spears is a great choice to serve or bring to a party and stay on track with a healthy eating plan.

Arrange the cooked spears on a serving dish and you have a beautifully displayed appetizer. However it won’t be there for long, they will quickly disappear…. Enjoy!
