This is one of those recipes that I have made for so long that I don’t even remember where I got it from. I think it was one of those small magazines you get at the grocery store checkout, but I’m not 100% sure.
I make these bad boys every Thanksgiving, and we never have any leftovers.
BUT! They’re not limited to only Thanksgiving. I’ll make them just because it’s Tuesday or whatever. I don’t need an excuse.
This recipe has also evolved a bit from its starting point. Some of the changes were made by me. I shared this recipe with Jecca, and she suggested a few other changes. What we’re left with is a pretty freaking delicious green bean dish.
Green Bean Bundles
1 lb Fresh Green Beans
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
2 Tbsp Brown Sugar
10 Slices Bacon
Salt and Pepper, To Taste
Trim and steam the green beans. Toss them with the olive oil, salt, and pepper. Depending on your bacon and tastes, be careful with the salt.
Using 5-6 green beans per bunch, bundle them together and wrap with bacon.
Arrange on a sprayed baking sheet or baking dish. Sprinkle with brown sugar and more pepper.
Bake at 350F for 15-20 minutes, or until the bacon is crispy. Enjoy.
I used reduced sodium turkey bacon last time and these ended up with around 60 calories each. Yuuuuum!
