Barbecued Green Bean Bundles
Barbecued Green Bean Bundles – whole green beans are wrapped in bacon and drizzled with barbecue sauce then baked until delicious!
I reached way back in my archives for the recipe I’m posting today. This recipe for Barbecued Green Bean Bundles made the rounds way back in the 1980’s.
You remember. Back when we all wore our hair as big as possible and didn’t worry about the consequences of eating a half pound of bacon at one meal. You remember those days, don’t you?
I haven’t made this recipe in at least twenty years but for some reason I recently started thinking about it again. Of course that meant I had to give it one more try! Know what? It’s still as good as it was twenty years ago.
This goes really well with baked chicken or pork chops. I mean, come on, what does bacon not go with? Duh.
How to Make Barbecued Green Bean Bundles
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
All you need for this recipe is three simple ingredients. Some canned whole green beans, some bacon, and some barbecue sauce. This is the only recipe I make with a purchased barbecue sauce. For any other barbecue recipe I use my family’s super-secret sauce recipe. That recipe, however, is very vinegary and tangy and this dish really needs something more mellow and a little sweet. Just use whatever you think your family would like best.
Make bundles of 6 or 7 green beans. Wrap each bundle in bacon and place seam side down in a baking dish.
Drizzle barbecue sauce over beans and bacon.
Bake for 45 minutes or until bacon is nicely browned.

Lana – thanks for posting this “oldie but goodie” — but, it is MUCH OLDER than the 80s! I graduated h.s. in 1964 and I recall the first time I ate it — most likely at one of the ubiquitous POT-LUCK DINNERS at church! It was something “new” and oh-so “exotic” for us back then; altho’ I believe the beans weren’t WRAPPED in the bacon, could have been cooked first and then mixed in with the sauce and completed on the stove-top. Regardless, glad to know that it’s being “revived” and enjoyed by new generations.
Just in time for Thanksgiving dinner. They would certainly compliment the turkey .
Wow! I want those! I will have to try this soon.
These look so tasty!
I’m going to have to read that paragraph about what means bbq to who and where it was cooked ;)
Looks great- this is a good way to get my bf to eat green beans!
This had my name, all over it! Thanks so much.
Those look SO good!!! Wish I could dive into a plate of them right now! [email protected]
