This recipe is from Paula Deen's show on Food TV. It looked like the perfect thing for Christmas dinner. It worked out great because I was able to blanch and bundle them and have them all ready to pop in the oven in advance. They looked as yummy as they were. Highly recommended!
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Blanch green beans for 3 minutes. Toss them in olive oil and salt and pepper. Bundle about 5 green beans and wrap a piece of bacon around the bundle. Place in a roasting pan and roast for 10 to 15 minutes, until bacon is cooked.
These were excellent. I partially cooked the bacon first, and added a little bit of garlic powder when I seasoned the green beans. My bacon turned out very crisp and delicious!
Easy and delicious. I did cook the bacon about halfway through before baking them with the green beans and I think that definitely helps crisp them up. Makes for a pretty presentation too! Thanks!
