Here is a good recipe for you to start off the new year.
Green Bean Bundles
salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 350.
If you like symmetry you can trim your green beans to be the same size.
Place green beans in a large bowl. Squeeze 1/2 lemon into bowl with salt and pepper, Toss to coat.
Cut bacon slices into about 3 pieces. Wrap about 5 green beans with bacon.
Place bundles, seam down, on a greased baking sheet.
Bake for 20 minutes or until bacon is crispy.
