  • 1 pound fresh green beans, trimmed
  • 1/2 pound bacon (here is where we get our favorite bacon)
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • Toothpicks


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Bake the bacon on a sheet pan for about 10 minutes, until cooked but not crispy at all. Set aside.
  3. Bring a large pot of water to boil. Boil green beans for about 2 minutes, until still crisp and only partially cooked through. Drain in a colander and run cold water over them to stop the cooking process.
  4. Wrap 6-8 green beans with 1/2 piece of bacon. Secure with a toothpick.
  5. Sprinkle a little salt, pepper, and brown sugar on top of bean bundles.
  6. Cook 15-20 minutes at 400°F until the bacon is done to your preference.
