Green Bean Bundles
1 can whole green beans
1 pkg sliced bacon
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp garlic powder
3 tbsp soy sauce
1 stick butter
Cut bacon strip in half, then gather 6 or 7 green beans together and wrap cut strip of bacon around beans.
Secure with a toothpick.
Arrange in a baking dish, set aside.
In a samll saucepan, melt butter, add brown sugar, garlic powder & soy sauce.
After butter mixture is melted pour over green bean bundles.
You can marinate these for 12 or 36 hours in advance, but no longer than 36 hours.
Bake in 350 oven for about 35-40 min. or until bacon is done.
Also you can fry your bacon, drain. Add everything to a saucepan and cook till hot throughout. This is easy when pushed for time.
(When you use 2 cans of green beans double the butter, soy sauce, and garlic powder. Don't triple with 3 cans, just double the sauce mixture or you will have a lot of sauce.)
I usually get a 12 oz pkg. for 2 cans of green beans and I have bacon strips leftover but only a few.
I most of the time double the recipe and make them a couple of days before and let it marinade in the icebox. Seems sometimes to give it a extra kick.
