Green Beans w/ Bacon Bundles

s s


A few years back I discovered a great green bean recipe that we use for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners.

Something a little different from the usual (and a little scary)… green – bean – casserole.

Don’t get me wrong… my girls love those crunchy little onion things… but you can hold your culinary head high, as you watch these tasty little bundles fly right off the serving platter.
