Bacon wrapped green beans are an easy and healthy side dish to make. Even Keto and Low Carb dieters will love these.
I would like to start expanding my recipes and appeal to more diets out there. If you are following WW don’t worry. I will still post the points for the recipes. I just want to start making notes of whether or not a recipe is Gluten-Free/Low Carb/Paleo/Dairy Free/ etc.. you get the gist. So many people have allergies these days and it would help for them, right?
New Brown Sugar Substitute!
I have also found a great low point sugar substitute that is zero points. It is a little bit spendy but you can get it on Amazon here. It is called Sukrin Gold and it doesn’t have ANY funky aftertaste. I was so shocked when I tried my pumpkin pie recipe which I will be posting on Friday.
How do you make green beans taste good?
I’m not really a fan of green beans. Fresh to be exact. I prefer the French Style green beans right out of the can. Call me crazy! I found a way to make fresh green beans taste good. You wrap them in bacon, just like you make about anything else taste good. If you don’t like bacon then that is your own fault.
How do you make bacon wrapped green beans?
Trim the ends off the green bean. Place the green beans in a pot and boil them for 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer the green beans to an ice water bath to stop the cooking. Take about 5 green beans and wrap them up in a slice of bacon. The bacon must be raw. Lay the bundles down on a sheet pan about 2 inches apart and bake them for 10 to 15 minutes.
Do you have to cut off the ends of the green beans?
My green beans came in a bag and the ends were already cut off. If you get fresh ones you will have to trim the little ends off.
