Candied Green Bean Bundles

Serves 32

Prep Time – 30 min
Cook Time – 45 min
Total Time – 1 hr 30 min

1 lb bacon, regular not thick sliced
3 cans (14.5 oz each) canned green beans
1 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp soy sauce
32 toothpicks

To prepare the bundles
1.Line a large casserole dish or high rimmed baking sheet with several layers of foil
2.Cut bacon slices in half
3.Drain green beans thoroughly and place in large bowl
4.On a large clean work surface (I use a cookie sheet for easy clean-up) lay out toothpicks, bacon slices and the bowl of green beans
5.Lay out a bacon slice flat
6.In the middle place 5-6 green beans
7.Roll bacon, fairly tightly, around the green beans
8.Secure the bundle with a toothpick at the seam
9.Place bundles in the prepared pan, they can be packed in there pretty tight – you can make these up to 24 hours in advance and store them covered in the refrigerator until ready to bake

To bake the bundles
1.Preheat oven to 350
2.In a small saucepan melt together butter and brown sugar until well combined
3.Add in garlic powder and soy sauce, whisking until smooth
4.Pour butter mixture over bundles, as evenly as possible
5.Bake bundles for 40-45 minutes or until bacon is cooked through and most of the liquid is gone, they will shrink some
6.Remove from oven and serve or move to a serving platter & keep covered until ready to serve

Each bundle is 4 WW+ points
