Bacon Wrapped Roasted Green Beans

I feel like I’ve been sharing a lot of savory dishes lately. Weird, man. I’m usually more of a sweets girl.

I promise, gooey, chocolatey, ridiculous concoctions are coming up next week. Cross my heart and hope to die.

In the meantime, you should probably eat a few veggies to prepare yourself for the coming week of decadence and debauchery. Make your mama proud. Eat something green.

Just, you know, be sure to wrap that green goodness in bacon first. It’ll be okay. You can leave that part out when you’re bragging to your mom about how healthy you are. And definitely skip over the part where you brush the bacon with melted butter. Moms don’t need to know everything you eat. Just keep ‘em happy with the green parts.

Bacon Wrapped Roasted Green Beans

Bacon Wrapped Roasted Green Beans

Ingredients

  • 1 pound fresh green beans
  • 5-6 slices bacon, cut in half
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Place a cooling rack on a large cookie sheet (or use a broiler pan like me).
  2. Wash and dry green beans. Snap off the ends, if you're into that kind of thing. (I am.) Grab a small handful of beans (anywhere from 5-10 green beans) and lay them on a strip of bacon. Roll the bacon up and around the green bean bundle and place it in the pan, seam side down. Repeat with remaining green beans.
  3. Melt the butter in a sauce pan on the stove. Add the brown sugar and garlic powder and mix together until well combined. Remove from the heat and brush over the tops of the green bean bundles. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  4. Cover with foil and roast for 35 minutes. Remove foil and roast for another 10-15 minutes or until the bacon gets nice and crisp. Enjoy!

    Haha I think my mom would do the opposite! She’s usually irritated at how much green I eat and wishes i would just eat some damn bacon already! (Direct quote.)

    I’m afraid my statin drug insists that I not wrap my green beans in bacon. I’ll bet there’s something else I could think of though.

    These are amazing! I just made them a couple nights ago and there were fabulous! It reminds me of another savory dish that I love Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus. Give them a try sometime and you won’t be disappointed. http://4peatssake.wordpress.com/2011/03/02/prosciutto-wrapped-asparagus/

    Green beans are my favorite veggie, and don’t even get me started on bacon. Perfect combo!

    This is a family favorite. Instead of the butter mixture we marinade the bundles in italian dressing. Nom nom nom…

    I tried to make these and the butter/brown sugar/garlic mixture turns into a glob of gunk with melted butter around it. Can you explain that part in a bit more detail like is the stove on low while your mixing. How long etc… thanks

    I just left on low while mixing the butter, garlic, and sugar and once it was combined removed from the heat. Shouldn’t take more than a minute or two for it to come together.

    Sorry you had problems with this one!
