Green Bean Bundles
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.
1 lb fresh green beans, trimmed
8 bacon strips, partially cooked
1 Tbsp finely chopped onion
3 Tbsp butter
1 Tbsp white wine vinegar
1 Tbsp sugar
1/4 tsp salt
Cook the beans until crisp-tender. Wrap about 10 beans in each bacon strip; secure with a toothpick. Place on a foil-covered baking sheet. Bake at 400° until bacon is done, 10-15 minutes.
In a skillet, sauté 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.
