Naked Bacon Wrapped Green Beans
1 package No Sugar Added Naked Bacon
½ lb. green beans
1 tsp. olive oil
2 tbsp. crumbled blue cheese
2 tbsp. sliced or slivered almonds
1-2 tbsp.balsamic glaze or maple syrup (optional)
Preheat your grill to 400.
Wash and pat dry green beans. Separate the green beans into small bundles, about 7-8 beans each.
Carefully wrap each bundle with 1 slice of bacon, overlapping the bacon as little as possible. Use a few toothpicks to secure the ends of each strip in place.
Drizzle the bunches with olive oil.
Lay each bundle in a heated grill pan or directly onto the grill. Cook uncovered for about 2-3 minutes per side, turning until all sides are cooked. Once the ends of the beans are beginning to char and the bacon is crispy, remove from the grill and set aside.
While the bunches are still warm, top with crumbled blue cheese, almonds, and a crack of fresh black pepper. Drizzle with glaze or syrup and enjoy!
