Bacon Wrapped Garlic Scapes | Keto | Low Carb

Updated: Jul 9, 2019

I am super excited, it is Garlic Scape season here in my neck of the woods. What is a garlic scape? I wasn't sure either, they were new to me last year. Garlic scapes are the flower bud of the garlic plant. The bud is removed in late June to encourage the bulbs to thicken up. Garlic scapes are readily available at local farmers markets during the early summer months.


How do you prepare them? I wasn't sure of that either last year. After searching around I found wrapping them in bacon sounded like the perfect marriage. I was correct! They are amazing, and super easy to make this way.


Other ways to prepare garlic scapes would be to stir fry in butter (yum!), add to pasta dishes, roast in the oven, add to hummus, make the into a dip, pickle them, or make into a pesto.


These make for a perfect appetizer or side dish with some Crispy Parmesan Chicken Cutlets.

Bacon Wrapped Garlic Scapes | Keto | Low Carb


Ingredients:

Bacon

Garlic Scapes


Directions:

Cut the scapes into 6 to 8 inch pieces, tightly wrap each scape with a thin slice piece of bacon, spiraling down the scape as you go. In a pan, on the stove top, over medium heat, cook the scapes until the bacon browns/crisps on one side and then turn over and cook the other side until bacon is brown/crisp. Remove from the pan, drain on paper towels. Serve immediately. These reheat well in a pan or in the oven.



Enjoy!
