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!
