Cook 6-8 pieces of bacon about half way done. You don’t want them cooked all the way because they are going to go into the oven. You don’t want them too undercooked because they won’t get finished in the oven. Half way. Trust me on this one. I cooked my bacon for about 6 minutes.

Meanwhile, wash and snap off the ends of about 1 pound of green beans. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and toss green beans into boiling water. Let boil for only 3-4 minutes. They should turn bright green and be softened a tad.

Now, gather about 6-8 green beans and wrap them up in either 1/2 piece of bacon or a whole piece. It kind of depends on how healthy you want to be OR how much of a green bean hater you have at your dinner table.

Green bean hater=full piece of bacon.

Once you’ve wrapped up your green bean bundle, stick it all the way through with a toothpick. This holds the bacon in place, thus holding your green beans in place.

Sprinkle the tops of your bundles with a little salt, pepper, and brown sugar.
