Bacon Wrapped Green Beans

22 06 2011

I am sure that I am not the only one out there that believes anything wrapped in or that contains bacon is going to be a great dish. If the recipe contains bacon I usually use more than it asks for and in general the recipe is fabulous. These bacon wrapped green beans were no exception! What made them extra tasty was the brown sugar glaze that you make and baste over them before baking in the oven. It was an instant winner and will be made often in my house.

Bacon Wrapped Green Beans

~ 1 lb. fresh green beans

~ 10-12 slices of thick-cut bacon

~ 2 Tbsp. butter

~ 1 Tbsp. brown sugar

~ 2 cloves garlic, minced

~ 1/4 tsp. salt

~ 1/4 tsp. pepper

1. Preheat oven to 400o F. Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with non-stick spray.

2. Wash and thoroughly dry green beans, then season with salt and pepper. Bundle together about 5-8 green beans. Bundle together as many as you’d like! Using a slice of bacon, wrap it around the center of the beans to hold it together. Lay the bundle bacon seam side down in the baking dish to hold it together. Repeat with remaining beans.

3. Heat a small saucepan over low heat. Add butter, brown sugar and garlic and whisk until melted and combined. Using a brush, brush the mixture over the top of each green bean bundle. Cover the bundles with foil and bake for 35 minutes. Remove foil and bake for 10-15 minutes more, just until bacon gets crispy.
