Bacon-Wrapped Green Beans

Fresh green beans are wrapped in bacon and covered in a sweet sauce in this fast and simple side dish. Every time I take these bacon wrapped green beans to a luncheon or family dinner, people beg me for the recipe. —Julie Hewitt, Union Mills, Indiana
  • Total Time
    Prep/Total Time: 30 min.
  • Makes
    4 servings


  • 3/4 pound fresh green beans
  • 4 bacon strips
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon soy sauce


  • Place beans in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Cook, uncovered, for 8 minutes or until crisp-tender. Meanwhile, in a skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until cooked but not crisp, about 3 minutes. Remove to paper towels.
  • Drain beans; place about 12 beans on each bacon strip. Wrap bacon around beans and secure with a toothpick. Place on an ungreased baking sheet.
  • In a small bowl, combine the butter, brown sugar, garlic salt and soy sauce; brush over bundles. Bake at 400° for 10-15 minutes or until bacon is crisp.

    These are easy to prepare but look special. The flavor is great. My son in law is a picky eater and he loved these.

    I have never eaten fresh green beans before that I can recall. These were good. The sauce and bacon took away the green flavor. Thanks for the idea!!
