I stole this recipe from my cousin, Mollie! She is the one who enticed me to start this blog, so I got to give her props! Check out her recipe blog here. I can't believe she has kept this from me for all these years!
Mollie's recipe is for serving large groups, but I wanted to try it as a side dish, so I cut the recipe in third. It was deelish and we will definitely be having it again...who wants to wait for family gatherings or office parties to have it? NOT ME!!!
16 ounce cans of whole Green beans
1-2 cloves garlic, pressed
3 Tbsp brown sugar
2 Tbsp butter
1/3 lb. bacon (Mollie uses pepper bacon, I prefer Wright's)
Salt & pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Cut Bacon strips in half (or thirds if you use Wright's). Wrap around a bundle of green beans (3 or 4) and place seam down in a square baking dish. Bring sugar, garlic, salt & pepper to boil. Pour over beans. Cover & Bake for 45 minutes. Uncover and broil until bacon is done. Here is Mollie's pic...I stole that, too! THANKS, MOLLIE!
