Bacon Bean Bundles

At Connie Burke's home in Gaithersburg, Maryland, this colorful side takes the place of green bean casserole for special dinners. “It's quick to fix, goes with a variety of meats and tastes great,” Connie says.
  • Total Time
    Prep/Total Time: 25 min.
  • Makes
    2 servings


  • 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.
  • Drain beans; place eight beans on each piece of bacon. Wrap bacon around beans and secure with a toothpick. Place in an ungreased shallow baking dish. Sprinkle with garlic, salt and pepper; dot with butter.
  • Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 10-15 minutes or until bacon is crisp.

    These are very tasty and makes such a pretty presentation. I will double the recipe next time. My son in law raved about them and he is a picky eater.

    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.
