Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 400°F. Place a greased wire rack on an aluminum foil-lined rimmed baking sheet.
  2. Arrange bacon strips in a single layer on rack, taking care not to overlap. Bake for 10 minutes. (Bacon will be partially cooked.) Remove bacon to paper towels to drain.
  3. Meanwhile, bring water to a boil in a Dutch oven. Carefully add green beans in batches; cook for 2-3 minutes or until crisp-tender. Remove and immediately place green beans in a bowl of ice water. Drain and pat dry.
  4. Whisk the butter, 1/3 cup asiago, garlic powder and pepper in a large bowl. Add green beans; toss to coat. Wrap bacon around 8-10 green beans. Secure each with a toothpick. Place bundles on a greased 15 x 10-inch baking pan. Whisk maple syrup and brown sugar in a small bowl; brush over bacon.
  5. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until bacon is almost crisp. Sprinkle with remaining asiago. Bake for 4-6 minutes longer or until bacon is crisp.
