Divinely gourmet! These were wonderful! I chose this b/c it was different from the other bundle recipes here. I had never heard of them before and was looking for a new recipe to try for Canadian Thanksgiving.
These sure were a hit! They are a bit fiddly to make, but so worth it! I used a full piece of bacon and tied it to secure the green beans and red peppers. No toothpicks needed although, I did have to secure a few with toothpicks where the bacon wouldn't cooperate, but that was rare. I doubled the marinade recipe and was worried they would be too greasy, but they roasted perfectly in the oven. I also added quite a bit of garlic from the jar. We like garlic.
Will make these again again. They are really tasty and give a beautiful presentation. They go well with Turkey and I plan to make them at Christmas with Prime rib. Thanks for a very tasty and unique recipe. I wish I could give it more than 5 stars!

This is a perfect choice for a dinner party menu. I blanched and marinated the beans in the morning and put the bundles together shortly before the guests arrived. Cooking time was correct. I served these with prime rib and mini roasted potatoes. The presentation was lovely. I will definitely add this recipe to my dinner party repertoire. Thanks Sherri.
These were soo good!! My mom made them for Thanksgiving dinner. I wish I would have taken a picture, very pretty! Will definately be making these in the future, thank-you!
