Oh goodness I just barfed in my mouth a little just thinking of it. Whoever thought of the green bean casserole should be shot. OK, maybe not shot, but how on earth did it become a Thanksgiving tradition in homes across America? I have ban green bean casserole in my house. It has never been in my house and never will be - I mean really, what is up with those crunchie onionie things sold in a can....
I do agree that green beans should be on every table across America on Thanksgiving and Green Bean Bundles are what have become tradition in our home.
6 strips of bacon cut in half and partially cooked
1 teaspoon Creole seasoning (I like Tony Chachere's)
4 TBL melted butter
3 TBL packed brown sugar
Steam beans until crisp-tender in water seasoned with 1/4 tsp Creole seasoning.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
When beans cool enough to touch, wrap approximately 6-10 beans in the partially cooked bacon. Place bundles in a baking dish. Sprinkle bundles with garlic salt and Creole seasoning. Pour melted butter over bundles and sprinkle with brown sugar. Bake 15-20 minutes or until bacon is done.
