I found this recipe in a rural newspaper years ago and have made it often. 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. —Virginia Stadler, Nokesville, Virginia

I made these for lunch today and we loved them. I used turkey bacon instead of bacon and they were still very good.

I have tried this twice. After the reading the comments, I used butter flavor olive oil instead of butter and the used clarified butter which did not gel. both versions were great and had similar taste.

Pretty easy to make. The sauce is absolutely delicious, but congeals after several minutes...hence the 'serve immediately' (i.e. eat while pouring the sauce on them!). This was the only problem I had with the dish.
