Bacon-Wrapped Green Beans
Fresh green beans are wrapped in bacon and covered in a sweet sauce in this fast and simple side dish. Every time I take these green bean bundles to a luncheon or family dinner, people beg me for the recipe.Yield: 4 servings
|3/4 pound||fresh green beans|
|3 tablespoons||butter, melted|
|1/4 cup||packed brown sugar|
|1/4 teaspoon||garlic salt|
|1/8 teaspoon||soy sauce|
Place beans in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Cook, uncovered, for 8 minutes or until crisp-tender. Meanwhile, in a skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until cooked but not crisp, about 3 minutes. Remove to paper towels.
Drain beans; depending on the size of the beans, place about 8-12 beans on each bacon strip. Wrap bacon around beans and secure with a toothpick. Place on an ungreased baking sheet.
In a small bowl, combine the butter, brown sugar, garlic salt and soy sauce; brush over bundles. Bake at 400° for 10-15 minutes or until bacon is crisp. Yield: 4 servings.
