Green beans are a vegetable that most people don’t think to cook up every day. But, they’re so good for you and can be delicious too! I love bacon wrapped green beans because it means less prep time in the kitchen and more time spent with my family. Give this recipe a try; I know you’ll love it!
prep: 15 mins cook: 20 mins total: 35 mins Servings: 8 Yield: 8 servings
salt and pepper to taste
1 (16 ounce) package frozen cut green beans
1 (12 ounce) package bacon, strips cut in half
2 tablespoons brown sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a casserole dish.
Set out the bacon, green beans and casserole dish in a little assembly line. Lay out a half strip of bacon. place a small bunch of green beans (6 or 7) onto the strip of bacon and roll up into a bundle. Place the bundle into the casserole dish, seam side down. Repeat with remaining bacon strips and green beans. You can pack these pretty tight in the pan, just know that if the bacon is touching another bundle they take some prying to get apart. Sprinkle with the brown sugar and salt and pepper.
Bake in the preheated oven until browned and heated through, about 20 minutes.
