Bacon Wrapped Green Bean Bundles
Ditch that old, soggy green bean casserole this holiday season, and cook up these sweet and savory Bacon Wrapped Green Beans for your next holiday meal!
- 1 ½ pounds green beans trimmed
- 4 strips bacon cut in half
- 3 Tablespoons butter melted
- ½ cup brown sugar
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 2 teaspoons soy sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Submerge the green beans in the water, cover with a lid, and boil for 8 minutes. Drain the water from the pan and cool the green beans completely.
In a large bowl combine the butter, brown sugar, garlic, and soy sauce. Toss the cooled green beans in the butter and brown sugar mixture.
Taking 8-10 green beans in a bundle, wrap tightly with a strip of bacon around the center. Secure with a toothpick if necessary. Sprinkle each bundle with cracked black pepper. Repeat with the remaining bacon and green beans.
When ready to cook, start your pellet grill on the smoke setting with the lid open for 4-5 minutes to establish the fire. Close the lid and set the temperature to the highest setting (about 400-425 degrees). Allow the grill to preheat for 10-15 minutes.
Place the green bean bundles on the grill and cook for 10-15 minutes, turning as needed, until the bacon is crisp and the green beans are tender. Serve immediately.
