I’m a side dish failure. Gracing my table with the main dish is often some frozen or canned veggies (warmed up, of course), and maybe potatoes in a variety of forms. Sometimes we’ll do applesauce or fresh fruit, but nothing too exciting.
Except for these. I “break them out” for special occasions for a surefire hit when entertaining! No one will even complain about eating veggies. (Probably because there’s so much sugar and butter involved!)
Bacon-Wrapped Green Bean Bundles
- 4 (15-oz.) cans of whole green beans ~ not “cut”, not “french-style”
- bacon strips, cut in half (I use my kitchen scissors.)
- 1 cup melted butter
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp. garlic salt
- 1 tsp. soy sauce
Gather 10 beans into a bundle. Wrap bacon around beans and secure with a toothpick. Arrange in a 9×13 pan.
Combine melted butter, brown sugar, garlic salt, and soy sauce in a bowl. Mix well. Pour over beans.
Chill overnight or for several hours. Bake at 375° for 45 minutes – 1 hour, or until bacon is cooked.
