Maple Glazed Green Bean Bundles { Recipe }

Maple glazed bacon wrapped green bean bundles if you will, have been a family favorite for many years. This is the most delicious recipe I have ever had for green bean. Anybody who has them for the first time always begs for the recipe. Let me know if you try them or if you make a similar recipe.

What you need:
1/2 stick of butter
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1 Tablespoon of Maple Syrup (not pancake syrup)
2 Tablespoons of soy sauce
1 Tsp of garlic
1 package of bacon cut in half ( I use the side with less fat )
1 pound of green beans, washed with the ends snapped off
*If you don't have Maple Syrup and don't want to spend the money on a bottle you could always buy Maple Bacon to get the same flavor.



 Melt butter


Add brown sugar


Maple Syrup



Soy Sauce



Garlic



And whisk until it's a syrup like consistency.


Grab a handful of green beans and a half of a slice of bacon and wrap the bacon tightly around the bundle.





Place the bundle in a casserole dish with the end of the bacon side down. This creates a seal holding the bundle together as the bacon cooks. 


Ladle the mixture over the bundles.







 Didn't she do an awesome job?


Place in the oven at 375* for at least 25-35 minutes.  I leave it open the first 15 minutes and place a lid or foil on for the remaining time.



Can you see where the other half of the bacon went? My husband loves this meal! Who doesn't love a  bacon wrapped  dinner?

I hope you give this recipe a try!
