It is that time of year again.  People have started talking about the abominable, alarming, appalling, atrocious, deplorable, depressing, dire, disgusting, distressing, dreadful, fearful, frightful, ghastly, grody, gross, gruesome, grungy, harrowing, hideous, horrendous, horrible, horrific, horrifying, nasty, offensive, raunchy, repulsive, shocking, stinking, synthetic, tough, ugly, unpleasant, unsightly GREEN BEAN CASSEROLE.  

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.
2 pounds of fresh green beans, washed, ends cut off
6 strips of bacon cut in half and partially cooked
1 teaspoon Creole seasoning (I like Tony Chachere's)
Garlic salt
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.
