Ingredients

  • 1 lb fresh green beans
  • 8 slices bacon
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Wash and trim the ends of the green beans.
  3. Blanch the green beans in boiling water for 3 minutes, then transfer them to an ice bath to stop the cooking process.
  4. In a small saucepan, combine the brown sugar, soy sauce, butter, Dijon mustard, garlic powder, and black pepper. Heat over medium heat until the butter is melted and the sauce ingredients are well combined.
  5. Take a bundle of green beans (about 8-10 beans) and wrap a slice of bacon around them, securing with a toothpick. Repeat with the remaining green beans and bacon slices.
  6. Place the bacon-wrapped green bean bundles in a baking dish. Drizzle the sauce over the bundles, making sure to coat them evenly.
  7. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the bacon is crispy and the green beans are tender.
  8. Remove the toothpicks before serving.
  9. Enjoy these delicious green bean bundles as a side dish or appetizer!
