GREEN BEAN BUNDLESPrint Recipe
- 1 12-ounce package bacon, strips cut in half
- 1 16-ounce package green beans
- Garlic, to taste
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- Salt and pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a casserole dish. In a large saucepan bring 4 quarts water to boil. Add the green beans and boil for 6 minutes. Drain well and immediately plunge into ice water to stop the cooking. Make an assembly line with bacon and green beans and a good place to roll green bundle up. Lay out a half strip of bacon, place a small bunch of green beans (roughly 6) onto the strip of bacon and roll up into a bundle. Place the bundle into the casserole dish, seam side down. Repeat until all bacon and green beans are bundled. Do not let bundles touch other bundles. Sprinkle with the brown sugar, garlic, salt and pepper. Bake in preheated oven until browned and heated through, about 30 minutes.
