Caramelized green beans and bacon bundles
It's the holidays so here is a recipe you can easily make with your kids : caramelized green beans and bacon bundles.
It's very easy to make, you put the beans onto the bacon and you roll it, brush it with a butter + sugar mixture and bake so it will caramelize and crisp up. Very addictive and not time consuming at all !
Caramelized green beans and bacon bundles (10 pieces) :
- 400g green beans (fresh or frozen)
- 10 slices of thin cut bacon
- 20g butter
- 1 tbsp brown sugar
Blanch the green beans in a pot of boiling water for 3 minutes. Rinse them under cold water for a few seconds to cool them down.
Preheat the oven at 160°C/320°F.
Lay a slice of bacon on your work surface.
Add about a dozen green beans on top and roll the bacon tightly around it.
Put the bundles on a parchment paper covered baking sheet, fold side down so it stays in place.
Melt butter and sugar in a small pan.
Brush the bacon with the sugar and butter mixture.
Bake for 10-12 minutes until the bacon is crispy and browned.
