16 oz bag of organic green beans, 6-8 beans per bundle
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
6 slices of bacon, 1/2 slice per bundle
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
Preheat oven to 375F. Cook bacon in a skillet, not crispy (if they are crispy they will crumble instead of being able to wrap them around the beans) Reserve the drippings.
Trim and wash the beans. In a large saucepan boil water and add the baking soda and beans. Cook for 3 minutes until tender. Remove to a large bowl of cold water to stop the cooking process. Dab dry and toss into the reserve bacon drippings add the garlic and salt and pepper to taste. Remove and place on paper towels to soak up grease.
Cut a slice of bacon in half and wrap it around 6-8 beans. Secure with a toothpick and place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Combine brown sugar with a tablespoon of water and lightly brush over the beans. Bake 20-22 minutes or until bacon is crisp and beans are lightly roasted. Yum Yum!
