Green Bean Bacon Bundles make the BEST fresh holiday side dish! Wrap small bundles of fresh green beans in strip of bacon. Whip up a homemade mustard vinaigrette, then brush the green bean bundles with the vinaigrette. Bake this side dish until the bacon has cooked through. These Green Bean Bacon Bundles are sure to be a winner at this year’s Thanksgiving or Christmas table!
Green Bean Bacon Bundles.
Try saying that three times fast.
Green Bean Bacon Bundles, Green Bean Bacon Bundles, Green Bean Bacon Bundles…
That’s a tongue-twister if I’ve ever heard (or seen) one.
This recipe is reminiscent of one my mother has cooked for various holidays throughout the years, and it remains one of my favorite dishes because, well, who doesn’t love green beans? And who, assuming they’re a meat eater, doesn’t enjoy bacon, too?
The combination makes for a decadent side dish, something that’s well worth the calories if you limit your love of it to once (or twice) a year.
And I made it for Friendsgiving… because what else could be a better accompaniment to our meal?
