This is a pretty dish to serve for a group of people. I made it for our family and everyone seemed to enjoy it. The pre-packaged green beans from Costco, in their produce area, are wonderful, as are the ones from Trader Joe's. Here's the recipe:
1 lb. of green beans, washed and ends removed (the ones from Costco and Trader Joe's are ready to go)
6 strips of bacon, cut in half and partially cooked
1/2 t. Creole seasoning (such as Tony Chachere's), divided use
4 T. butter, melted
3 T. packed brown sugar
Put beans in a saucepan with 1/4 t. Creole seasoning and put water halfway up the sides. Bring to a boil, turn heat to medium and cook 3 minutes. Drain beans and cool.
When beans are cool, wrap about 6-10 beans with the bacon. Place bundles in a 9 x 13" baking dish. Sprinkle bundles with the garlic salt and 1/4 t. Creole seasoning. Pour melted butter over the bundles and sprinkle with brown sugar. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until bacon is done.
NOTE: To make ahead, complete all steps, leaving off the butter and sugar. Refrigerate over night until ready to bake. Before putting in oven, pour the melted butter and sprinkle with the brown sugar.
