This is a way to fancy up green beans for company or special occasions. As my husband says if it has bacon it can’t be bad.
Green Bean Bundles
Fresh whole green beans
Package of bacon
1/3 cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1/3 cup French Salad Dressing
dash of garlic powder
dash of salt and pepper
Fry bacon until just slightly done, it should not be crisp. Drain. Take four to six whole green beans and wrap them with a slice of slightly cooked bacon to make a bundle. Some use toothpicks to hold them closed, I don’t. Just place loose ends down in a baking dish. Continue to wrap bundles until all the bacon has been used.
Mix brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, French salad dressing, garlic, salt and pepper. I always taste and play around with it at this point adding more of this and more of that. So mine are never exactly the same. Of course I never measure the ingredients to begin with. 😉
Pour sauce over green bean bundles. Bake at 350 – 400 degrees for approximately 15 minutes. You want the bacon to begin to crisp and the green bean to be tender yet not too soft and gooey.
