I found this recipe in a rural newspaper years ago and have made it often. The bean bundles are excellent with chicken or beef. Sometimes I'll arrange them around a mound of wild rice to make an appetizing side dish.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound fresh green beans, trimmed

  • 8 bacon strips, partially cooked

  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped onion

  • 3 tablespoons butter, margarine or bacon drippings

  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon sugar

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

Directions

  1. Cook the beans until crisp-tender. Wrap about 15 beans in each bacon strip; secure with a toothpick. Place on a foil-covered baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees F for 10-15 minutes or until bacon is done. In a skillet, saute onion in butter until tender. Add vinegar, sugar and salt; heat through. Remove bundles to a serving bowl or platter; pour sauce over and serve immediately.
