1lbsFrench green beans
8thick higher-welfare pork bacon rashers
1/4cupsliced almonds or chopped almonds
coarse sea salt
Blanch green beans by either adding to a large pot of boiling water for 4-5 minutes and then transferring to an ice bath OR use the Instant Pot set to 0 minutes on high pressure + manual pressure release and immediate ice bath.
Preheat a heavy bottomed skillet over medium-low heat.
In the meantime, roll 8 beans into each rasher of bacon. Make sure you wrap them tightly so the beans don't fall out.
Add the bacon-wrapped green bean bundles to the pan with the crease down so they seal well and don't roll open later. Leave space in between the bundles and make sure the bacon doesn't touch.
Fry for about 2 minutes per side until golden and crispy all around.
Sprinkle with sea salt and sliced almonds or chopped almonds and serve.
