How to Make Bacon Wrapped Green Bean Bundles with Brown Sugar Glaze:

1.) Boil Fresh Green Beans in a Large Stock Pot

First, fill the stock pot with water and place on high heat. Then, add 1 tsp. Salt to the water and allow it to come to a boil. Once the water has come to a rolling boil, gently add the fresh green beans and allow to cook for 4-5 minutes. They should be bright green and tender.

2.) Blanch Green Beans in Ice Water

While the water is coming to a boil, fill a large glass mixing bowl halfway with ice and cold water. This will be used to blanch the green beans. After they are cooked, immediately transfer the green beans to the ice water to stop them from cooking and keep their bright green color.

3.) Assemble the Bacon Wrapped Green Bean Bundles

First, cut the bacon in half so that it goes further. Lay a piece of bacon on the cookie sheet, and add half a teaspoon of brown sugar to the middle.

Bundle 6-8 green beans together and place over the brown sugar in the middle of the slice of bacon.

Season the green beans and top them off with a little more brown sugar. Wrap the bundle tightly with the bacon and secure it in place with a toothpick.

4.) Bake or Grill and Serve! 

Continue assembling the green bean bundles until you run out of either green beans or bacon. Place in a 400 degree oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the bacon is crispy.

If you have extra green beans left over, you can always just place them in a baking dish with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and brown sugar and bake them. Serve and Enjoy!

    Can this be made ahead and reheated?

    • Shanna

      Yes! They reheat very nicely, though, the bacon won’t be as crispy. But they taste so amazing, I don’t think it will hurt anything! Hope you enjoy! =)

    When do I add the garlic powder?
