  • ½ tsp garlic powder

  • ¼ tsp kosher salt

  • 1 package bacon
  • avocado oil
  • ¼ cup balsamic glaze


  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Lightly grease baking sheet with avocado oil.

  4. Remove bacon from package and cut the bacon slices in half.

  5. Wrap the fennel wedges with bacon and place on baking sheet seam side down.

  6. Roast bacon wrapped fennel for 15 minutes, rotate baking sheet, and roast for an additional 15 minutes.

  7. After 30 minutes, turn the oven up to broil and broil for an additional 3-5 minutes or until fennel has charred a bit and bacon is crispy.

  8. Serve with balsamic glaze drizzled over the top.
