Simple bacon wrapped green bean bundles

There are some recipes floating out there on the ‘net that use canned green beans. DON’T use them. Don’t make me come over to your kitchen and whack you with a wooden spoon. And for those of you who want me to whack you with a wooden spoon, trust me, you wouldn’t like it.

Make these. Now. For company. For yourself for lunch when the kids aren’t around to watch you eat 700 calories in one bite – estimate, not real caloric value but I am sure I am close.

There has been some feedback on this recipe and my Brown Sugar Bacon Wrapped Asparagus Recipe.

  • A lot of people don’t like adding the sauce, so I have updated this recipe to reflect that. I personally will make this without the sauce for a side dish to meals, as shown in the photos.
  • If you are really wanting to make a real splash entertaining, I would use the sauce.
  • If you truly love bacon wrapped food, try my very popular Bacon Wrapped Roasted Cabbage Wedges!

  • 48 green beans or 8 per bundle, however many you want
  • 6 slices of bacon one per bundle
  • 1/4 cup of butter
  • 1/3 cup of brown sugar
  • 1/3 teaspoon garlic powder


  1. Wash the green beans and remove the ends, placing them into a microwave safe container with a little water in the bottom. Microwave them for about 4 minutes to soften them up a little.
  2. Melt your butter, and mix in the brown sugar and garlic. I know that the garlic seems a little weird, but trust the Ukrainian girl on this one; the garlic just gives it that extra zing.
  3. Take 8 green beans and wrap one bacon slice around it. Lay the bundles with the ends of the bacon tucked underneath, and make sure the ends are touching another part of the slice, the bacon will sear together and these won't fall apart, miracle of miracles!
  4. To make the sauce, combine them in a microwave safe cup and heat until the ingredients are all combined and the sugar has dissolved somewhat.
  5. You can either make the bundles plain, ( as shown) then put the sauce out for your guests, OR take the sauce, and drizzle it over the bundles, covering them as much as possible.
  6. Pop them into a 400 degree oven and cook for about 20 minutes, until the bacon is cooked. Remove, cool them slightly and then be amazed!

    I made these last night for a group of 6 adults & my 3 boys – 9,5 & 3, to accompany my Whiskey Grilled Baby Back Ribs, (they are the best grilled ribs ever!!!), anyway….back to your green bundles…big hit! My local grocery store did not have any fresh green beans, so i used asparagus, they were really, really good! When my 9 yr old seen them even he couldn’t resist, “mmm I love bacon & anything that is wrapped in bacon”, was his comment. I also loved that I could prepare these earlier during the day just pop them in the oven before serving. I also prepared your Twice Baked Double Stuffed Potatoes – also DELISH!! I used Herb & Garlic cream cheese – YUM YUM! Accidentally stumbled across your website & so glad I did!

      Hey Nicole, so glad you liked them and what a great substitution asparagus must have been! Yum! I love asparagus..and bacon…great combo! My son as well eats anything wrapped in bacon. Those ribs sound amazing, perhaps you will share the recipe sometime when it’s grilling season here in Alberta (um, maybe in three months? Sigh.)

      Thanks for popping by and thanks for the lovely compliments 🙂

    I made the beans wrapped in bacon for the bookclub ladies this week. I do not usually try a new recipe on this group as they are all very fine cooks. Everyone loved the dish and asked for the recipe. I will definately make this again…a great way to get kids to eat their vegetables
