Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 lbs green beans look for thinner green beans or use french green beans (haricot vert)
  • 6 slices bacon cut in half, do not use thick cut bacon
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt or 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup butter melted
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley optional
  • cooking spray

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Place the bacon on a sheet pan and bake for 7 minutes. Remove the bacon from the oven.
  •  Trim the ends of the green beans. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil.
  • Place the green beans in the pot and cook for 2-3 minutes until just tender. Drain and put the green beans in a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking process.
  • Pat the green beans dry. In a small bowl mix together the garlic salt, butter, brown sugar and pepper. Pour the butter mixture over the green beans and toss to coat.
  • Wrap 8-10 green beans with a piece of bacon and secure with a toothpick.  Place the green bean bundles on a sheet pan coated with cooking spray.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes or until bacon is crispy. Sprinkle with parsley and serve.
