Bacon Wrapped Green Beans

Posted by Stacey @ Savory & Sweet on June 14, 2012 at 9:35 AM Comments comments (0)

What's a better thing to do with your veggies, than to wrap them in bacon? My thoughts exactly. This recipe came from my sisters' lack of ideas for cooking grean beans, and my brother-in-laws' confidence in talking to strangers. ;) While in the grocery store, with green beans in hand, my brother-in-law decided to ask an innocent by-stander how she cooks her green beans.

I was introduced to this idea while being served some hors d'oeuvres at a friends wedding, and I was in love. This takes the classic flavors of an antipasto and turns the ingredients into an easy and practical appetizer. You can even add some rolled up slices of capicola and prosciutto for a more heartier skewer.
