These are awesome as a side dish. You don't have to use fresh green beans. Use 2 14.5 oz cans of canned green beans instead.

If you want a veggie everyone will love, you can't go wrong with these. Bacon wrapped anything is a hit! These are unique with their brown sugar, salt, and pepper flavor. The bacon drippings and brown sugar create their own sauce that the green beans cook in. Serve these and kids will definitely eat their veggies.

Note: When they come out of the oven, the bacon will be done but may not be as crisp as you'd like. To make the bacon crisp, pre-cook it until soft and has wrinkled edges. Then cut in half or thirds and wrap around the bundles. Slightly pre-cooking will begin the crisping process. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
