Green Bean Bacon Wraps
1 lb. fresh green beans, washed, whole
1 pan boiling water (to blanch)
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. Lemon juice
Seasonings, salt and pepper
1 package regular cut bacon
In sauce pan of boiling water, quickly blanch green beans for about 4 minutes to partially cook. Drain from water, put in mixing bowl, and let cool slightly. Once able to handle them (just a few minutes), drizzle small amount olive oil, lemon juice, salt pepper and seasonings (I used a pinch onion powder, garlic powder, and tsp. parsley -but adjust to whatever you like. Mrs Dash Garlic and Herb mix works well too!) Lightly toss in mixture.
Pre-heat your oven to 350 F.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, take about 4-5 beans in hand and wrap the bunch with 1 piece of bacon. Lay on cooking sheet (you can use a wooden toothpick to hold bacon if needed or just lay with bacon end down.) Wrap remaining beans, placing wraps on cooking sheet about an inch apart.
Bake at 350 F in oven for about 15 minutes or until bacon is fully cooked.
Serve with baked chicken breast, or lean steak.
