Here is another recipe that my awesome sister shared with me a while ago. These bacon wrapped green beans are easy to make, great for a crowd, kid friendly and fabulous. What more can you ask for in a dish? Oh..and they also look like they are a lot of hard work and will certainly impress your guests!
We created this fun video to help teach you how to make these little bundles of joy.
Level of Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: Prep Time – 20min; Cook Time – 30 minutes
1 pound of green beans, trimmed, washed and broken in half
1 pound of bacon (not thick cut or maple…just regular bacon)
1/4 cup light brown sugar
Special Equipment and Other Items Needed:
Preparing Bacon Wrapped Green Beans:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Cut the bacon in half. Lay the strips of bacon flat on the baking sheet, about 1/2 inch apart. Sprinkle brown sugar on the bacon, pushing lightly to make sure it sticks to the bacon.
Put about 5 green beans at the edge of the bacon and roll. Place seam side down. Take about a 1/2 teaspoon of butter and put on each side of the bundle. Repeat with remaining bacon and beans.
Cook for 30 minutes, or until bacon is crispy. Serve immediately.
If you leave the bacon out for about 20 minutes before using it, you will be able to stretch it more easily around the beans and it will cook more evenly.
