  • 1 pound fresh green beans, washed and trimmed
  • 8-10 slices of bacon
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
  • Toothpicks, soaked in water for 15-20 minutes


  • Preheat the Air Fryer:
    • Preheat your air fryer to 375°F (190°C).
  • Prepare Green Beans:
    • Wash and trim the ends of the green beans.
  • Blanch Green Beans:
    • Bring a pot of water to a boil and blanch the green beans for 2-3 minutes. This helps soften them slightly.
  • Wrap with Bacon:
    • Take a small bundle of green beans (about 8-10 beans) and wrap a slice of bacon around them, securing the bacon with a soaked toothpick. Repeat for the remaining bundles.
  • Season:
    • In a bowl, mix olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic powder, black pepper, and salt. Brush this mixture over the bacon-wrapped green bean bundles.
  • Air Fry:
    • Place the bundles in EaZy MealZ Air Fryer Basket, making sure they are not too crowded to allow even cooking. You may need to do this in batches.
    • Air fry at 375°F (190°C) for 12-15 minutes or until the bacon is crispy and the green beans are tender, turning halfway through the cooking time.
  • Serve:
    • Once done, remove the toothpicks and serve the green bean bundles hot.
  • Optional:
    • For an extra touch, you can sprinkle some grated Parmesan cheese over the bundles during the last few minutes of cooking.
