BACON WRAPPED GREEN BEAN BUNDLES
1 lb fresh green beans
salt + pepper
Blanch 1 lb. fresh green beans for a few minutes (Paula says 3 minutes, but I definitely took the green beans out within one minute).
Paula tosses her green beans with olive oil, salt and pepper, but I didn’t bother, since bacon has enough fat and salt.
Microwave bacon in a single layer for about 1 minute to start their cooking process.
Wrap one slice of bacon around a bundle of about 4 or 5 green beans. Instead of wrapping the bacon on top of itself, the way a roll of Scotch tape looks, start closer to one end of the bundle and slightly spiral the wrapping.
Place bundles with the loose bacon end tucked underneath.
Roast in preheated 350 degree oven for 15 minutes.
