I got this recipe from the Houston Chronicle. These were really good, easy and a great alternative for beans!

These were a big hit at Thanksgiving. I added a little beef bouillon to the water when boiling for added flavor. I also par cooked the bacon before wrapping so it would come out nice and crunchy. Added about 1/3 cup finely diced onion. Will be making again for Christmas.
- 1 1⁄2 lbs green beans, trimmed
- 1⁄2 cup butter
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dry mustard
- 1 teaspoon brown sugar
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 8 ounces bacon, slices cut in half
Directions See How It's Made
- Fill large saucepan with water and bring to a boil. Add the beans to the water, and blanch for 3 to 4 minutes, until they are pliable but still crunchy. Drain, run under cold water and pat dry.
- In a medium saucepan, melt the butter. Stir in the dry mustard, brown sugar, garlic, and salt. Pour the butter mixture over the green beans to coat. Refrigerate, covered, at least 4 hours or overnight.
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Make bundles of about 8 beans each. Wrap half a bacon slice around each bundle, secure with a toothpick and arrange in a single layer in a casserole dish.
- Bake, uncovered, for 45 minutes, or until bacon is cooked and beans look wrinkled. Remove from oven and warm or at room temperature. Pour off some of the butter before serving.
