Sweet and Spicy Green Bean Bundles!

Sweet and Spicy Green Bean Bundles!

I'm always on the lookout for new and interesting veggie side dishes! This one caught my eye because of the presentation! But the original recipe kind of scared me because it contained a pound of bacon and a cup of butter! There was no way I was making the recipe that way! So I decided not to use any butter and had to think of other liquids to take its place! I decided to used Sriracha sauce, Worcestershire sauce, spicy brown mustard and a little water instead! I loved the way it turned out...sweet and spicy! But not too much of either! The bacon gave it the salty/smokey flavor that it needed! This was perfect!
And the best way to eat these little bundles of deliciousness, is to just cut into them with a knife and fork!

Sweet and Spicy Green Bean Bundles!
Sweet and Spicy Green Bean Bundles

3/4 lb.  frozen petite whole green beans, thawed
6 bacon strips
garlic powder, 6 pinches
kosher salt, 6 pinches
1/2 cup granulated light brown sugar
1 Tbls. Worcestershire sauce
1 Tbls. Sriracha sauce
1 Tbls. spicy brown mustard
2 Tbls. water

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Line a baking dish with tin foil for easy clean up.
On a microwave safe dish, place 3 strips of bacon and cover with a paper towel.
Microwave on high for a minute and a half. You just want to slightly cook the bacon, but have it still be soft enough to wrap around the green beans.
Blot on paper towels.
Do this with the last three strips of bacon also.
Then take about 16 whole thawed petite green beans into a bundle and wrap a piece of bacon around the bundle as shown in the photo above.
Lay the bundle on the baking dish with the bacon seam side down.
Repeat this for the 5 remaining bundles.
Lightly sprinkle each bundle with salt and garlic powder, about a pinch for each bundle.
In a small bowl mix together the brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce,
 Sriracha sauce, spicy brown mustard and water.
Spoon equal amounts over each bundle.
Then cover and bake for 30 minutes.
Then remove cover and bake another 10 minutes.
Serve warm with pan juices poured over each bundle.
Serves 6

  1. Usually asparagus are wrapped with bacons, its a good idea to wrap green beans.
