Green Bean Bundles

Posted on

These green bean bundles make a nice appetizer, side dish, or snack. Enjoy!


6 cups water

1/2 pound fresh green beans, trimmed

4 to 6 bacon strips

3/4 cup Italian salad dressing


1. In a saucepan, bring water to a boil. Add beans; cover and cook for 3 minutes. Drain and set aside.

2. Cut bacon in half lengthwise; place on microwave-safe plate. Microwave on high for 2.5-3 minutes or until edges curl.

3. Place four or five beans on each strip; wrap bacon around beans and tie in a knot.

4. Place bundles in an 8-in. square baking dish. Drizzle with salad dressing. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until beans are crisp-tender.

5. Broil 4 in. from the heat for 2-3 minutes or until bacon is crisp.

*Makes 4-6 servings.*
