Green Bean Bundles

A sweet friend from MOPS shared this recipe with me and I fell in LOVE.  It’s a fabulous recipe used as a side dish or appetizer and works great prepared in advance.  It’s also a great recipe this time of year because you can find fresh green beans on sale!

What you need:

2 cans whole green beans, drained

1lb bacon

1 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup butter

4 clover garlic, minced

Cut each strip of bacon into 2 or 3 even pieces, depending on length of bacon. Spread each piece with your finger to thin and stretch it slightly. Take 5 or 6 whole green beans and place them in the center of each bacon piece, them roll bacon around beans and put seam side down in a single layer in the bottom of a greased casserole dish. In a small saucepan, mix together brown sugar, butter, and garlic; bring to slight boil. (Can also do this in the microwave.) Drizzle over bundles. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
