Green Bean Bundles - Grandpa Leo

Food Memories: This recipe came from Lauren's grandmother (Faye Fields). It quickly became a favorite for the Bray's and was a part of their holiday meal every year.


2 cans whole green beans (not cut)
garlic powder seasoning
brown sugar
1 lb. bacon

Drain green beans and place in a large mixing bowl. Season to taste with garlic powder. Toss gently. Set aside.

Slice bacon strips in half. Wrap bacon around approximately a 1 inch bundle of green beans and place in a 9x13 inch baking pan. (usually use glass).

Melt 1 regular stick of butter in a sauce pan. When melted add brown sugar to taste (usually 2 to 3 tablespoons). When disolved, pour over green beans and bake in oven at 350 degrees until bacon is brown. If you overcook, green beans will shrivel.
