The recipe I’m sharing for Green Bean Bundles today is so delicious, everyone will think you spent hours making them. But, honestly, this tasty side dish is super simple to make!
You may want to think about skipping the green bean casserole this year and just making these green bean bundles for Thanksgiving!
Whether you need a quick side for a weekday meal or are looking to impress your guests, these bundles are a perfect side to any meal.
HOW TO MAKE GREEN BEAN BUNDLES
To make these tasty bundles, you’ll need:
- Fresh green beans
- Brown sugar
- Garlic salt
Grab all your ingredients and let’s start making this super easy veggie side dish!
Preheat your oven to 350℉ and then spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray. You can also use a silicone baking sheet if you have one.
Gather your green beans up into bundles of 6-7 green beans.
Wrap 1 slice of bacon around each bundle and secure the bacon with a toothpick.
Note: You may have to gently stretch the bacon in order to cover the bundle.
Place the green bean bundles on the greased baking sheet and brush with melted butter.
Sprinkle on the garlic salt and brown sugar.
Bake the bundles in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until the bacon is fully cooked.
DO YOU NEED TO TRIM THE ENDS OF THE GREEN BEANS?
It’s really personal preference. Sometimes I skip the snip and other times I’ll snip about an inch or so from both ends of the beans.
More than anything, just make sure you wash the beans before you begin making your bundles.
CAN YOU PREPARE GREEN BEAN BUNDLES AHEAD OF TIME?
You can prep them ahead of time and store them in the refrigerator. For the best taste and crisp to the bacon I would suggest serving them immediately after they’re cooked, however.
HOW TO STORE LEFTOVERS
You can easily store any leftover green bean bundles in the refrigerator for 3-5 days. Wrap them in plastic wrap or put them in an airtight container with a lid.
CAN I FREEZE GREEN BEAN BUNDLES?
Absolutely! The best way to freeze them is to wrap the bundles, but don’t bake them! Place them in a plastic freezer bag and store them in the freezer until you are ready to bake them.
Keep in mind that frozen green beans will be softer than fresh.
