Bacon Wrapped Green Beans
A Gourmet way to serve this
side dish for Dinner Parties or any time
I like to cook
the bacon and beans separately then wrap in bundles, we eat first with our eyes, they
look better in my opinion using this method,
they are not wilted, charred, overcooked, shriveled or unattractive but fresh looking and inviting.

Prep Time: 25 min Cook Time: 10 min
Servings: 6 to 8
bacon slices (one per serving)
1 pound fresh whole green beans (4 to 5 per serving), stem end trimmed at an angle
1 tablespoon melted butter
Salt and pepper, to taste
Place slices between paper towels. Microwave until tender crisp.
Steam the green beans to an al dente stage (tender crisp), drain and
gently toss with melted butter, salt and
pepper. Wrap a slice around approximately 4 to 5 beans depending on their size making
bundles, serve bacon seam-side down on a platter or individual plates.
