Time (Start to Finish): 20 min

1 strip bacon
½ cup french green beans
½ lemon
balsamic vinegar

1. Preheat the oven to 425F
2. Take the green beans and cut the ends off so they are all the same length
3. Take the bacon and cut it in half
4. Take the beans and separate them into 2 bundles, and down the center, wrap the bacon. Make sure the end of the bacon is on the bottom touching the cookie sheet
5. Place both on a cookie sheet with sides (there will be bacon grease) and cook for 10 min. flip over and finish until the bacon is cooked
6. When out, sprinkle with salt and lemon juice and a splash of balsamic vinegar

Rating: 4.5 strawberries
Notes: These were so quick and easy! Just the right amount of bacon, salt and the lemon. The balsamic pulls it all together I feel like. Its amazing the things you can do with bacon, let me tell you! These were a nice evening snack, but would be great on a buffet or served with chicken and potatoes perhaps. You can also use asparagus or little carrot slices or anything like that. Bacon is a wonderful thing!!
