To serve 6:
1¼ lb

18 thin slices
streaky bacon
1 teaspoon
garlic salt
2 tablespoons
brown sugar
1½ teaspoons
freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon

How to Cook Green Bean Bundles

  1. Quickly fry the bacon, but only for a minute or two on each side. Do not allow it to become crisp.
  2. Trim the ends off the green beans. Bring a pan of salted water to the boil and cook the beans for 3-4 minutes until just tender. Drain, and fill the pan with cold water to stop the cooking process. After they have cooled a little, remove the beans and pat dry with kitchen paper.
  3. Melt the butter and mix it with the garlic salt, brown sugar, and pepper. Place the beans in a shallow dish and pour the butter mixture over them. Toss well to coat.
  4. Wrap 7-8 green beans with a piece of bacon and secure with a toothpick. Trim the ends so they are nice and straight. Place the green bean bundles on a flat oven sheet coated with cooking spray or lightly greased with vegetable oil.
  5. Bake in a preheated moderately hot oven (Mk 6 - 400°F - 200°C) for about 15 minutes or until bacon is crispy. Sprinkle with a little chopped parsley and serve.

600g (1¼lbs) of green beans will make about 18 bundles with 7 beans per bundle.

A somewhat underrated vegetable since it's both tasty and nutritious. It has a habit of shrinking when cooked, so always allow plenty.
