Green Bean Bundles

Green Bean Bundles
Fresh Green Beans
1 Package Turkey Bacon
2 T Olive Oil 
Cavendars Greek Seasoning 
Lemon Pepper 
Garlic Powder 
Garlic Salt 
Cracked Black Pepper 
Italian Dressing

Trim the ends of green beans and rinse (kitchen shears are perfect for this). Place beans in a large bowl and add 2 T of olive oil, and as much of each seasoning as you desire. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and spread green beans in single layer in a baking pan. Bake for about 15-20 minutes turning beans every 5 minutes. Place the strips of bacon flat on a cookie sheet and cook for 5-7 minutes at the same temperature. The bacon should be half way cooked through and flexible. Let everything cool.Take a small bundle of green beans and place them at the end of a bacon strip. Roll the bacon and form a bundle. Place these in a 9x13 baking pan. Once all are completely formed you can cover with italian dressing or whatever dressing of your choice. Cook at 350 degrees and bake for about 10-15 minutes. 
When J & I grilled a lot this was a go to recipe for a healthier option. We also used asparagus in place of the green beans. The recipe sounds complicated, but it is really quite easy. Bacon is great with anything and I promise you cannot tell a huge difference between turkey bacon and regular bacon. Save on some calories and fat! A very complimentary pair.
