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.

    9.Make a bundle of 8 or 9 beans, wrap half a bacon slice around each bundle, securing with a toothpick, and arrange in a single layer in the same casserole used for marinating.
    10.Bake, uncovered, for 45 minutes or until the bacon is cooked and the beans look wrinkled. Serves 6-8.
