Cedar Wrapped Green Beans with Sage and Bacon

  • 4 cedar grilling wraps
  • 4 strips of bacon
  • 12 oz. fresh green beans
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • ½ Tbsp. black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. sage, chopped
  • Pinch of salt


Soak the wraps in hot water for several minutes and preheat the grill or oven to 425°F. Cook the bacon on a baking tray until crispy, about 15 minutes. Drain off the fat and set aside. Add the beans to a mixing bowl with the oil, pepper and salt, toss well to combine. Lay out the four wraps and top with green beans, divide them equally. Roll up each wrap and secure with twine. Place the wraps on the grill or in the oven and cook for 15-20 minutes until beans are tender, but still bright green. To serve, open up each wrap and garnish with chopped bacon and sage. Grilling Tip: Keep a spray bottle of water handy in case of flare-ups.
