These low-carb Sweet and Spicy Prosciutto Wrapped Green Beans are a super easy delicious keto side dish that’s easy enough for weeknight dinners but pretty enough for a holiday table!

I just love the combination of the sweet and salty flavor which pairs great with the rich prosciutto. If you’re not a fan of spice you can leave out the cayenne pepper. To make this dish even easier to prepare look for prepackaged fresh green beans that have already been trimmed, this will save you a few minutes of prep.

You can also freeze these bundles and simply reheat a few when needed, they freeze really well and only need a few minutes under your broiler to reheat and crisp back up.
