Tasty Tuesday: Bacon-Wrapped Green Beans

I made these green beans for a covered dish supper at church a few weeks ago & they were given the "older Southern lady" seal of approval (insert huge sigh of relief here)... these would be delicious for your Easter dinner next week!

The Ingredients:

  • 1 pound of fresh green beans or a large 28-oz can of french style green beans
  • 1 package of bacon
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) of butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp garlic salt
  • 1/4 tsp soy sauce
  • toothpicks

The Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. If you're using fresh green beans, break the stems off & boil them until they reach desired tenderness. If you're using canned beans, pour them into a shallow bowl. Open bacon & cut all the slices in half (this is easier to do before pulling slices apart).

To assemble, lay one piece of bacon flat & place a bundle (4-5 beans) in the middle. Wrap the bacon tightly around the beans, using a toothpick to secure. Place in baking dish. Repeat until all beans &/or bacon is used.

Melt butter, then stir in brown sugar, garlic salt & soy sauce. Spoon mixture over the bean bundles evenly. Bake for 25 minutes or until bacon is cooked.
