Green bean bundles

Has anyone ever heard of these babies?  If not you need to make them ASAP!  You will thank me later, I promise.🤩

In my opinion, green beans win over asparagus any day of the week.🙌  My mother in law introduced them to me one Thanksgiving and they have officially become a holiday staple. 

The kicker is that they are a cinch to make. You basically marinate the green beans overnight in Italian dressing. The next day, you bundle about 5-7 together, tightly wrap a piece of bacon around them, and secure with a toothpick. That’s right, a whole piece of bacon!🥓 You want the bundles to be small enough to carry and munch on with no plate necessary.❌🍽❌

Fill a tray with the bundles and bake at 350 until the bacon is done and the greens are singing.🎶 This usually takes 20-30 minutes. You can serve them as an appetizer or side dish. They are delicious for days (if you have any left over)!?!

You can use canned or fresh green beans. If you go the canned route, select whole green beans as French style will not be sturdy enough. Fresh are a little healthier and pack more crunch while canned are easier and roast up a bit more. It’s a good idea to experiment with both to see what your preference may be. Enjoy! 😋

You will need:  2 cans of whole green beans or 60-100 fresh green beans, one pack of bacon, bottle of Italian dressing, toothpicks 

To prepare:  Soak fresh green beans or drained canned beans in Italian dressing overnight.  When you’re ready, drain off dressing but do not rinse. Bundle 5-7 green beans together and tightly wrap a whole piece of bacon around the center. If you have really thick bacon you can use halves. Place a toothpick through the middle to secure the bundle together and lay on a foil lined pan. Repeat process until all ingredients are utilized and bake at 350 degrees until bacon is done.  This normally takes 20-30 minutes depending on your oven.

I’m a self teaching home cook and aspiring foodie entrepreneur. I enjoy coming up with creative ways to prepare flavorful food such as snacks, desserts and everything in between. Cooking is a way for me to challenge myself and satisfy curiosities about different ingredients.

The hope is to produce something thoughtful, memorable or every once in a while maybe even wonderful. I enjoy following my “gut” and exploring new recipes that can be comforting, exciting and nourishing. Above all else, I enjoy exploring the emotions surrounding food and writing about those experiences. 😝👩‍🍳👩‍💻
