Green Bean Bundles

Green Bean Bundles

These bacon-wrapped green bean bundles are covered in a brown sugar, butter sauce and then baked until lightly crispy. You’re gonna love ’em. If you love green beans of course. And bacon. And really yummy things that involve butter.

For as long as I can remember, whenever anyone is having an event and asks if we can bring something, it’s usually this or The Best Baked Macaroni and Cheese Ever. If you’re looking for the perfect side to take to a friend’s house this is it. Going to a dinner, a potluck, Thanksgiving, or Christmas – look no further.

We’ve referred to these in all sorts of ways over the years: bundles, green bean roll-ups, call ’em whatever you want – they’re delicious!

I love the way our house smells while these things are cooking !

You legit just cut your bacon in half, put as many green beans as will fit, then roll ’em up. Repeat as many times as you have space for in your dish. I like to double the sauce just in case I decide to try and fit more in there.

Y’all, I posted this on my very first blog back in 2005, and the old pictures and “watermark” have me rolling. Good ‘ol ColorArmy days. I’ll have all of those old recipes back up here at some point. I know Mom would’ve loved to know people are enjoying the recipes she made us for years. Especially her baked potato soup that she always made us once the craziness of the holidays was over, while we snuggled up on the couch and binged Lord of the Rings as a fam.

  • 1 package of bacon
  • 2 cans 14.5 ounces green beans
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp garlic pepper
  • 1 tsp salt


  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
  • Cut your bacon in half.
  • Drain your green beans.
  • Place a few green beans in the middle of your bacon half, then roll the bacon up around the green beans, and tuck the end underneath.
  • Repeat this process until you've used all of your green beans.
  • Combine your brown sugar, butter, salt, and garlic pepper in a pyrex measuring cup, or a saucepan, and melt them however you like until combined. Stirring everything together until combined.
  • Bake your "bundles" for 45 minutes, or until the bacon looks crispy.


You can make these ahead of time easily, just do everything but pop ’em in the oven and then refrigerate until you’re ready to bake ’em.
You can cut the bacon halves in half if you like a little less bacon around them, it’s also easier to get the bacon around more green beans this way.
