16 slices pre-cooked bacon (she prefers raw bacon)
1 1/2 pounds fresh green beans
2 tablespoons light brown sugar
1/4 cup unsalted butter
Preheat oven to 400.
Place beans in a colander wash. Snap the ends off the green beans
Simmer beans on stove, just covered with water for 15 to 20 minutes. Drain beans in colander and rinse with cold water to hold color and cool. (we have discovered that a quick blanche is better for the beans and then toss them in the ice bath)
The bacon should be flexible to work with. If need be, place on a paper plate and microwave just long enough to war
Place 4 to 6 green beans on a slice of bacon. Roll the great beans into a bundle with the bacon. Continue until all the green beans have been used. About 16 bundles.
Place the bundles seam side down side by side on a greased baking dish.
Melt the butter in a small microwave safe bowl. Add brown sugar and mix well. Drizzle over the green beans in the baking dish.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes.
