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.

Fresh green beans are wrapped in strip of bacon and coated with a mustard vinaigrette before baking in the oven. These Green Bean Bacon Bundles make the perfect Thanksgiving side dish.

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?

    Girl, bacon is the best thing ever! I never liked green beans until recently. Now I have been trying all sorts of recipes with them. Bacon is one thing I have never tried with them. It’s going on my list! Pinning!

    • Erin

      I totally agree with you, Jenna. Bacon is WONDERFUL, and I’m happy to hear you’re liking green beans now. They’re my husband’s and my favorite. And I think bacon pairs quite nicely with these, so if you give these a shot, let me know what you think!

  2. Eileen

    ah, beans and bacon, together forever. 🙂 These definitely trump the usual gloppy green bean casserole!

    • Erin

      Amen, Eileen! You can’t go wrong with beans and bacon!

  3. Kristin @ MOMentous Moms

    I personally do not like bacon or green beans LOL. BUT my husband loves both and so once a year, I am not kidding, I make him a dish of each. Not usually together. This could be an awesome idea for combining the two so I only have to make one dish. This does actually look amazing, I am sure it is a winner. I am the sweet potato lover in the family so that is what I make each thanksgiving.

    • Erin

      Oh my goodness, Kristin! To each her own… For your husband who DOES like both bacon and green beans, this might be a delightful dish! Like you, I’m a sweet potato lover, so I always bring a sweet potato dish, too!

  4. aimee fauci

    This looks so darn good. We love our green beans but have never wrapped them in bacon. Oh my!

    • Erin

      Thanks, Aimee! Green beans wrapped in bacon are completely decadent and wonderful!

  5. MJ @ Daisy & June

    Yum! Those look delicious! I cook mine with brown sugar. I love bacon and green beans!

    • Erin

      Thanks, MJ! Green beans cooked with brown sugar sound divine. I’ve never tried that before, and I think I’m definitely gonna have to give it a go now!

  6. Amy Albers

    That looks delicious! Those two flavors go so well together! Okay, maybe I just think anything goes well with bacon!

    • Erin

      Thanks so much, Amy! These flavors really do go well together… and you’re right: most everything is great with bacon!

  7. .chris.

    Thank you for this! This recipe alone spurred a whole chicken roast dinner in mind while at work, all of which is in the oven now- so excited to try these green beans!

    • Erin

      You’re so welcome, Chris! I cannot wait to hear what you think of these green beans, and I hope they turn out wonderfully with that whole chicken roast dinner! That sounds heavenly… It’s totally not weird if I invite myself over for dinner, right? 😉 Happy cooking!

  17. Linda

    I need to bring a green vegetable to Thanksgiving which is a 30 minute drive for me. Can this be made ahead and then warmed up

    • Erin

      Yes, Linda! This absolutely CAN be made ahead and warmed up. Pull it from the oven 5-10 minutes early, then cover it in aluminum foil. Finish baking at the destination. 🙂 Enjoy, and happy Thanksgiving!
