Ever heard of green bean bundles? We hadn’t either until my dad met his ex-girlfriend. This was *her* recipe. And while she didn’t last (and has now been replaced with a totally awesome new wife), the bundles have remained, renewing my belief that everything happens for a reason, even dad’s ex-girlfriends.
Here’s how you make perfectly healthy veggies completely unhealthy and AWESOME with bacon and brown sugar.
You need a bag of frozen WHOLE green beans, a package of bacon and some brown sugar. That’s it.
I cut the bacon in half. Then lay it on the cookie sheet and place 5 or so green beans in the middle. Like so…
Wrap the bacon around the beans, place seam side down, then top with brown sugar. Go ahead, be generous.
Then bake at 350 for 45ish minutes, depending on how done you like your bacon. We like our bacon pretty well done around here.
Easy peasy and crowd please-y! These are always the FIRST thing to go at our Thanksgiving Dinner. You should try them out at yours!
Disclaimer: I am not a food blogger. I am actually not even much of a cook. This is a recipe I posted after Thanksgiving last year, and I’ve had a couple people email me looking for it again, so I figured I’d re-post it to be helpful… and because I’m too sick to blog about anything original right now (DAY 12 of whatever wretched sickness this is). I was going to re-take the pictures because, truthfully, the ones I posted last year aren’t all that appealing, but again, the sickness.
