Green Bean Recipes: How to Make Easy Green Bean & Bacon Bundles!

Green beans are a favorite for everyday and for holiday meals. Here’s how to dress up your green beans!

You’ll need:

  • green beans
  • bacon
  • olive oil
  • brown sugar (optional)
  • melted butter (optional)
  • almonds (optional)

Here’s how to make them:

  1. Bundle 8-10 fresh beans together and wrap with raw bacon. Drizzle a roasting pan with olive oil or pan spray and arrange the bundles in a single layer. Season with salt and pepper. 
  2. Top with brown sugar, melted butter and sliced or slivered almonds, if desired. Bake uncovered in a 350 degree F oven until bacon is done.

The brown sugar and butter will caramelize with the roasted nuts. For a healthier option, lightly saute strips of red pepper to tie your bundles, and replace sugar and butter with herbs and olive oil.
