Bacon Green Bean Bundles

Updated on April 12, 2014

Bacon Green Bean Bundles

This is a dish that I've loved for years and had made on numerous occasions. It's a great way to have kids eat their veggies, even if you are tricking them a tiny bit by wrapping it in bacon.

I have this recipe down to a science and I do know what's best so please consciously follow my instructions down to the letter. I know what I'm doing. I'm a professional. (lol)

Bacon Green Bean Bundles Instructions:

  1. Get a pot and fill with an inch to half of an inch of water. Place a strainer into the pot and turn on the heat to high. Cover to let the water heat up faster.
  2. While the water is coming to temperature, cut off the stem side of the green beans to prep for being steamed.
  3. Once water is boiling, put the green beans into the strainer to let steam. Turn heat down to low so the heat will be brought down to a simmer. Cover with lid and let steam for 3 to 2 minutes. Your beans should not be submerged in the water, they are meant to be steamed.
  4. After 2 to 3 minutes, uncover the pot and pinch the beans to see if they give a little. If they do, remove the strainer portion and rinse under cool water to stop the cooking process. Turn off the heat.
  5. Place the green beans into bundles, maybe 6 to 7 beans in a bundle.
  6. Take a strip of bacon and start at the end of the bundle and wrap the bacon around it, slightly overlapping to make sure of good coverage. Look at the photo on the right to get a very clear idea of what to do.
  7. Once all of your bundles are wrapped, place the bundles in a cold pan, seam side down. We want the seam side down so it's the first thing that will be cooked and by having it be cooked first, it will not become unraveled.
  8. Turn the heat onto medium and do not touch the bundles! You need to let them cook to create that seal.
  9. Salt and Pepper the bundles while you wait for them to cook. Give them about five minutes before using tongs to carefully check. If there's a decent cook and it's sealed, give the bundles a quarter turn. Turn down the heat to low.
  10. Continue to turn the bundles a quarter turn until all of the bacon is cooked. We steamed the green bean bundles for only a few minutes because they will continue to cook as the bacon cooks.
  11. Once all of the bacon is cooked, take them out of the pan and set aside on a paper towel to absorb any extra bacon grease.
  12. Enjoy!

Other Options

Please let me know if you're going to try this simple but delicious recipe!

You can easily swap the bacon for turkey bacon for a healthier option and you can swap the green beans out for asparagus, my little brother is a big fan of that.

You can also cook the bundles in the oven at 400 F on a foil lined sheet with raised edges, cook for 40 minutes, flipping the bundles after 20 minutes for an even cook. The pan option is a lot faster and it's the one I personally prefer.
