- 16 whole fresh green beans, trimmed
- 1 bacon strip, cut in half
- 1 small garlic clove, minced
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
- 2 teaspoons butter
- Place beans in a small saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil; cover and cook for 5-8 minutes or until crisp-tender. Meanwhile, in a small skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until partially cooked but not crisp, about 3 minutes. Remove to paper towels to drain.

- Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 10-15 minutes or until bacon is crisp. Yield: 2 servings.
Reviews for Bacon Bean Bundles
"Very tasty. I made these as part of my husband's Valentines Day dinner and he loved them. I would maybe double the recipe next time though because it seemed like such a small amount :)"
"We love this recipe in my home. My husband thought he didn't like green beans until he had them prepared this way."
