Bacon Twists

1 premade pie crust
1/2 lb bacon
1/2 lb green beans or asparagus
1 egg, beaten
salt and pepper to taste

Wash and tip green beans, or wash and break off the woody end of asparagus.

Unroll pie crust and cut into 1/4″ strips. Cut bacon into 1/4″ strips, trying to leave a little fat on the meatier side of each piece.

Preheat oven to 375F.

Place a piece of parchment paper or foil on a rimmed baking sheet.

Start wrapping each green bean or asparagus with the pie crust and bacon. You want to alternate the spiral down the vegetable. Make sure the ends are covered. Place wrapped vegetable on the baking sheet, and continue with the remaining pie crust, bacon, and vegetables.

Lightly brush each wrapped piece with beaten egg, and season with salt and pepper.

Bake 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve immediately, or let cool slightly (for snacking).
