Low Calorie Bacon Wrapped Green Beans Meal Prep & Storage

Meal Prepping & Make Ahead: The best way to meal prep these is to make them in a baking dish (or large glass meal prep container that is oven safe) and then cover. If they roll around in a bag they will fall apart and you will have to assemble them again. I don’t freeze them as the green beans tend to get soggy after defrosting.
Frozen Leftovers – I do not recommend freezing leftovers (the green beans will get soggy). But if you do freeze, it will hold for 2 weeks. 
Refrigerated Leftovers – Will hold in the refrigerator for 4 days.
Reheating – Add to a baking dish and bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Or add individual servings to the microwave for 1-2 minutes.
