I have been making these for aseveral years. Buy whole green beans and wrap with 1/2 slice bacon around about 6 of them Add melted butter to the brown sugar, a dash of soy sauce and a little garlic powder. These will disappear before your eyes. We call them GREEN BEAN BUNDLES
Huh. I was expecting these to be GREAT, but I was pretty disappointed. The beans were perfectly cooked as was the bacon, but I just didn't enjoy the two flavors together. Plus, it was infuriating wrapping the beans. The bacon kept falling apart. Glad a lot of people liked this but I don't think I'll be giving this another go. Sorry. :(
My daughter makes these for me every holiday as an alternative to green bean casserole. That is good too but I prefer Bacon Wrapped Green Beans. She adds just a touch of garlic and onion powder.
My sister makes these for Christmas each year, BIG favorite! She uses whole fresh green beans...even the kids eat these!
Tried a small batch before taking to a family gathering where they're accustomed to their meals being served from a fast-food window. The small batch passed the kid test (10 & 12) and I went back for seconds. After sprinkling with brown sugar, I put seasoned salt on the green beans sticking out. I steamed fresh green beans for 5 mins after snipping the ends off then baked at 375 for 25 mins. to make sure the bacon was cooked. They passed the test: I'll make them for extended family with undeveloped taste palates, and I'll cross my fingers!
Love them! Next time I am going to use more brown sugar and butter. I did use a splash of soy sauce and garlic powder like someone suggested!
We make these every year for Christmas....but we actually drizzle our favorite BBQ sauce over them instead of the brown sugar; and then right before it is done cooking maybe 5-10 minutes, drizzle some French Onions on top for a crunch.....very delicious.
I used precooked bacon, blanched the green beans, and baked them for a shorter time. They were wonderful. My guests raved about them! I will definitely make them again.
