this year, williams sonoma featured this recipe in their thanksgiving brochure. i served the green beans alongside of Ina’s sweet potato puree, which was also delicious as a thanksgiving vegetable. i would recommend these green beans to those members of your family who don’t like green beans. they are sweet and delicious.
to make the bundles: preheat the oven to 350 degrees and cook the bacon half way for about 7 minutes. drain and blot on paper towels, chill in the refrigerator until ready to prepare the green beans for the meal. next, clean and trim the green beans. mix about 3-4 tablespoons of margarine with salt and pepper to taste.
about 30 minutes before mealtime, arrange about 5 to 6 beans in equal portions on a parchment lined baking sheet. wrap each bundle with the bacon sliced to fit the bundle as needed. drizzle the butter and using about 1/4 cup of brown sugar, sprinkle the sugar on top of each bundle.
roast the bundles until the bacon is cooked through and brown, about 20 to 25 minutes. serve as a side vegetable with beef, poultry or pork. these green beans were excellent and looked very attractive on the plate. this recipe was easy, delicious and very attractive on the plate.
