Bacon Wrapped Green Beans

Bacon Wraped Fresh Green Beans

First step with green beans is washing them. I soak them in the sink in water with 1/4 c vinegar then rinse and clean them by snapping off stems and any pieces that are going bad or getting tooo soft.
Next I blanch them, meaning I boil them in a sauce pan in salted boiling water for 5 minutes. Then I drain the water and put the beans into a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking process. 5 min. Drain from ice water. In bowl, toss beans with 1 tbsp.  olive oil and seasonings of choice. I like garlic and herbs, or Italian seasoning mix.

Grease a baking sheet. Take a piece of bacon, wrap it around a bunch of the green beans - about 5 beans per wrap. set on baking sheet. Fill baking sheet with wraps and bake in oven 400 F for 15 minutes or until bacon is fully cooked. Doesn't take long.

Enjoy! We are having it with roasted chicken tonight. :)
