Tori Spelling's Green Bean Bundles
How funny to have a title with Tori Spelling's name in it on my blog.
Remember her? From Beverly Hills 90210, and I think now she has her own reality show, Tori and Dean. Good for her.
This was published in the NY Times and evidently, it is her recipe. Well, good for me, cause it was great.
These are perfect for Easter or Mother's Day, because you can make them ahead of time and put them in the fridge until ready to bake in the oven. They look pretty too, everyone loves little pretty bundles.
Who knew Tori could cook?
Tori Spelling's Green Bean Bundles (adapted from the NY Times):
10 slices bacon
1/2 pound fresh green beans (I used haricot vert)
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
Preheat oven to 375F degrees. Line a 9-by-13-inch baking pan with aluminum foil. Cook the bacon in a heavy skillet over medium heat until partly cooked but not crisp, about a minute or two, just to render the fat out. Drain on paper towels.
Heat a saucepan of water to boiling and add the green beans. Boil for 2 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water. Arrange groups of 4 to 5 beans in the prepared pan. If you are using haricot vert, then use 7 skinny beans per bundle. Wrap each with a slice of bacon.
Arrange the bundles on the foil lined baking sheet, with the bacon seam side down.
Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Add the sugar, soy sauce and Worcestershire sauce, and cook for 1 minute, stirring, until the sugar melts.
Brush mixture over the bean bundles.
Bake about 15 minutes, until the bacon is cooked through.
Thank you Ms. 90210.
