Bacon Wrapped Green Bean Bundles

Black tray with baked bacon wrapped green bean bundles

Our mantra is, "bacon makes everything better" , and this bacon-wrapped green bean recipe is no exception! This is our go-to recipe for an easy appetizer that's sure to be a crowd-pleaser (Superbowl, anyone?). The best part - the bundle of green beans makes this indulgence seem semi-nutritious!

First, grill up some bacon on the stovetop until only slightly cooked, and reserve any drippings. Wash and trim fresh green beans, and blanch them. Add a pinch of baking soda to the boiling water to keep the beans a bright green color rather than a drab boiled green that cooking can produce. After all, presentation is everything!

Chop some fresh garlic, and toss with the green beans in a large bowl, along with the reserve bacon drippings.

Next, wrap a small handful of green beans in the cooked bacon halves, and secure the bundle with a toothpick. Then, brush with a simple brown sugar glaze, which adds a hint of sweetness and helps the bacon green bean bundles caramelize while cooking.
