  • Method: Roasted/Baked
  • Cuisine: American

Ingredients

  • 1 lb (16 oz/454 g) fresh green beans, ends lightly trimmed
  • 1 tbsp (1/2 fl oz/15 ml) avocado oil
  • 3/4-1 tsp garlic salt (or to taste)
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 lb (16 oz/454 g) thick cut bacon, approx 12 slices, cut in half, width-wise
  • 1/4 c (2 fl oz/59 ml) your favorite sugar-free BBQ sauce

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F and line a large baking sheet with foil.
  2. Rinse and dry your green beans, then toss them in a bowl with the avocado oil, garlic salt, and pepper.
  3. Bind together 4-6 green beans and wrap with half-slice of bacon across the middle, overlapping bacon slightly at the back of the bundle. This should yield approximately 24 bundles.
  4. Arrange bundles, back-side down, on the baking sheet.
  5. Brush each bundle with some BBQ sauce, using it all by the end.
  6. Bake at 400°F for 40-45 minutes, until bacon is cooked through and beans are nicely roasted.
  7. If desired, broil for 2-3 minutes to crisp the top of the bacon.
  8. Remove from the oven and let stand 5 minutes before serving hot.
  9. Reheat any leftovers by broiling them for 2-3 minutes, or until heated through and bacon is re-crisped.
