How to Make Bacon Wrapped Green Beans
Bacon Wrapped Green Beans are a great party finger food or a beautiful side item next to a steak, pork or chicken dinner.
I love how they just melt in your mouth.
I highly recommend using fresh Green Beans, however whole frozen beans would also work.
Avoid canned beans – just not the same effect.
Bacon Wrapped Green Beans Ingredients –
Applewood Bacon (or your favorite bacon)
1 or 2 pounds fresh green beans (uncut, cleaned and ends trimmed)
Sea salt (regular table salt is OK)
Tony’s Creole Seasoning
Bacon Wrapped Green Beans Preparation
Pre heat oven to 475 degrees.
Fill a 6 quart pot with water.
Season lightly with salt.
Heat water to boiling.
Drop green beans in the boiling water to blanch (boil) for 2 minutes.
Immediately and carefully drain the green beans in a colander in the sink.
Allow cold water to run over the green beans to instantly cool and stop the cooking process.
Put green beans in a bowl and place a few ice cubes in the bowl.
On a cutting board, take 5-6 slices of bacon and cut in half.
Season the green beans lightly with Tony’s Creole Seasoning.
Begin to wrap the green bean bundles by taking 5-6 green beans and wrap the half slice of bacon around in an angled method.
Place wrapped green bean bundles on a large non-stick cookie sheet.
Continue wrapping until all beans are utilized.
Place the pan in the oven and allow to cook for 10 minutes.
Carefully remove pan from the oven.
Place Green Bean bundles on a tray and serve warm.
