Here in Florida, it’s still hot, which means we are still barbecuing like mad. And so I have zero shame in sharing this easy BBQ recipe with you in mid-September. Frankly, here in the South, we aren’t necessarily averse to serving up a little barbecue at the holidays, so don’t be afraid to bust this pretty dish out for the holiday table a little later in the year. It’s also a kid-pleaser. Bacon makes everything better, and all.
Including the time it took me to rinse and trim the beans, I had this dish done in under an hour, and most of that was bake time so you will have plenty of time to throw together an awesome main dish, or grill up some steak or burgers, while this is getting all tasty in the oven.
Notes: I used my fabulous Maple Bourbon BBQ sauce here, and that is what I used to calculate the macros. If your favorite keto-friendly sauce is a little higher in the carb count, it might make a slight difference, but honestly as long as the sauce is not loaded in starch and sugar it should be a fairly negligible one. If you have the time, make the sauce, though. I promise, it’s worth it.
Look for bacon that has about 12 slices in a pound. In my area, that’s the thick cut kind. Lastly, I broiled my bundles for a few minutes right at the end just so the top of the bacon would be good and caramelized. You don’t have to, but if the bacon still looks slightly wet it would be a good idea to follow that step.
