Bacon Wrapped Green Bean Bundles
Pretty little bundles of bacon wrapped French "green beans" known as Haricot verts which are longer and thinner than the typical American green bean. Of course, American green beans will work just fine here too.
|1 pound||haricots verts or green beans (ends trimmed)|
|4 slices||center cut bacon, cut in half (check brand for whole30 compliance)|
|olive oil spray (i used my misto)|
|pinch of salt|
|fresh cracked pepper, to taste|
|1/8 teaspoon||garlic powder|
Blanch the green beans for 3 minutes, then dry on paper towel. Preheat oven to 400°F. Spray a baking sheet with olive oil spray. Make 8 even bundles and wrap each bundle (about 1.6 oz each) in one half slice of bacon. Place the bundles seam side down on the baking sheet. Lightly spray the tops with a little more oil, season with salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste, then bake for about 14-16 minutes.
