Bacon-Wrapped Green Beans – Roasted fresh green beans wrapped in bacon, sprinkled with brown sugar and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar.
Friends, I am only here for a bit, taking just a little of your time to introduce you to how to eat green and healthy vegetables the right way; green beans meet bacon.
Many of you, if not most, might have discovered this wonderful recipe already, but just in case you haven’t, and since NFL kickoff is TONIGHT (!!!!), I thought this would be the perfect appetizer to start the football season.
They’re SO easy to make, they’re SO delicious, and they’re gluten-free, nut-free, dairy-free, and egg-free!! I have you ALL covered!
FYI! My very good friends are hosting a football party this weekend, and because their daughter suffers from severe food allergies, whatever I decide to bring has to be nut-free, dairy-free and egg-free. So, what dish could I possibly make that is allergen-free but so darn delicious? THESE Bacon-Wrapped Green Beans, of course.
AND THESE! Meet your new favorite dessert: TURON! Otherwise known as Lumpiyang Saging, OR as we in ‘merica call ’em, Fried Banana Spring Rolls.
Don’t you love them?! They are amazing! Crunchy and sweet, they are very simple to make (2 ingredients!!!!) and are also truly delicious.
