Bacon Wrapped Green Beans

Total crowd pleaser. I have yet to find anyone who wasn’t eating all of their green beans with this recipe. It is so sweet and savory that I will usually have a second helping of this instead of dessert at holiday dinners. Yes, it is that good. You can also make this ahead of time and store in the fridge the night before. Reheat in the oven for 10-15 minutes, and you are ready to go.

Bacon Wrapped Green Beans Recipe
  1. • Bacon
  2. • Can green beans (whole)
  3. • Garlic Salt
  4. • Brown sugar (which ever you have will work)
  5. • Foil (I know not an ingredient, but a must have)
  1. Take approximately 8 green beans and bundle them together over a slice of bacon and wrap them up. It is fine to have the ends sticking out on either side. Place them all on a foil lined baking sheet with a lip because you will have drippings from the bacon. Sprinkle with garlic salt and brown sugar.
  2. Place in a 400 degree oven for 20 minutes. You will need to take them out and flip them over after the 20 minutes and cook for additional 15- 20 minutes. You might need to drain the baking sheet with the excess fat drippings before placing it back into the oven. Sprinkle with more garlic salt and sugar after flipping and before putting them back into the oven.
  3. You can serve immediately or store and reheat in the over later. They are just as good. Just make sure to reheat in the oven so the bacon crisps back up. Microwave=soggy.
  4. Note: One can of green beans makes approximately 8-10 bundles and hence will require 8-10 slices of bacon
