This new spin on a traditional side dish gives green beans a contemporary upgrade. Vivid flavor and a fresh presentation, without any fuss.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 lb. Cut Green Beans
  • 1 pkg. Bacon
  • 3 Tbsp. (melted) Sweet Cream Butter - Quarters
  • 1/4 cup (packed) Light Brown Sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. Garlic Salt
  • 1/8 tsp. Soy Sauce

Directions

Place beans in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Cook, uncovered, 6 to 8 minutes or until crisp-tender.

Meanwhile, in a skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until cooked but not crisp, about 3 minutes. Remove to paper towels.

Drain green beans, and place 6 to 10 beans on each bacon strip (depending on the size of your green beans). Wrap bacon around beans and secure with a toothpick. Place on an ungreased baking sheet.

In a small bowl, combine the butter, brown sugar, garlic salt and soy sauce. Brush over the bundles. Bake at 400°F for 10 to 15 minutes or until bacon is crisp.

Notes

You may also bake the bacon for 10 minutes at 350ºF before wrapping the beans.
