Melt 1 tablespoon butter in 12-inch skillet until sizzling; add half of bacon slices. Cook over medium heat, turning once, until light golden brown (3 to 4 minutes). Drizzle 1 tablespoon maple syrup over bacon; continue cooking until heated through (30 seconds).
Remove bacon from pan; place onto serving plate. Pour maple butter from pan over bacon. Cover with aluminum foil to keep warm.
Repeat with remaining butter, bacon and syrup. Serve warm.
*Substitute sliced smoked ham.
Canadian bacon is a lean smoked meat more similar to ham than bacon. It comes in chunks that can be sliced or cut as desired.
