  • Set out the bacon, green beans and casserole dish in a little assembly line. Lay out a half strip of bacon. place a small bunch of green beans (6 or 7) onto the strip of bacon and roll up into a bundle. Place the bundle into the casserole dish, seam side down. Repeat with remaining bacon strips and green beans. You can pack these pretty tight in the pan, just know that if the bacon is touching another bundle they take some prying to get apart. Sprinkle with the brown sugar and salt and pepper.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until browned and heated through, about 20 minutes.

I have been making these for aseveral years. Buy whole green beans and wrap with 1/2 slice bacon around about 6 of them Add melted butter to the brown sugar, a dash of soy sauce and a little garlic powder. These will disappear before your eyes. We call them GREEN BEAN BUNDLES Read More

Huh. I was expecting these to be GREAT but I was pretty disappointed. The beans were perfectly cooked as was the bacon but I just didn't enjoy the two flavors together. Plus it was infuriating wrapping the beans. The bacon kept falling apart. Glad a lot of people liked this but I don't think I'll be giving this another go. Sorry.:( Read More

My daughter makes these for me every holiday as an alternative to green bean casserole. That is good too but I prefer Bacon Wrapped Green Beans. She adds just a touch of garlic and onion powder. Read More

The picture shown is of my dish from a few years ago. This is still a family favorite. A couple things though- the green beans should be blanched first and the bacon cooked but still pliable. I also drizzle butter over the wraps before sprinkling the brown sugar. This is all how the original recipe appeared a few years back. Read More

We make these every year for Christmas....but we actually drizzle our favorite BBQ sauce over them instead of the brown sugar; and then right before it is done cooking maybe 5-10 minutes, drizzle some French Onions on top for a crunch.....very delicious. Read More

Tried a small batch before taking to a family gathering where they're accustomed to their meals being served from a fast-food window. The small batch passed the kid test (10 & 12) and I went back for seconds. After sprinkling with brown sugar I put seasoned salt on the green beans sticking out. I steamed fresh green beans for 5 mins after snipping the ends off then baked at 375 for 25 mins. to make sure the bacon was cooked. They passed the test: I'll make them for extended family with undeveloped taste palates and I'll cross my fingers! Read More

Love them! Next time I am going to use more brown sugar and butter. I did use a splash of soy sauce and garlic powder like someone suggested! Read More

I used precooked bacon blanched the green beans and baked them for a shorter time. They were wonderful. My guests raved about them! I will definitely make them again. Read More
