Author: Heather Mangieri, RDN


  • 60 long Frozen French Green Beans
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp minced garlic (I used jarred garlic)
  • 3 slices raw bacon, cut in half to make 6 pieces


  • Preheat oven to 400. Spray a 9X13 baking dish with non-stick spray
  • Rinse green beans and lay them in a single payer on a towel to make sure they are thoroughly dry. Cut each piece of raw bacon in half, so that you have 6 pieces.
  • Bundle together ~10 long green beans. Wrap ½ slice bacon around the center of the green beans (it’s ok to stretch the bacon). Lay the bundle bacon seam slide down in the baking dish to hold it together.
  • Repeat with the remaining beans, making 6 total bundles. You can make more bundles based on how many servings you have.
  • Mix the olive oil and the minced garlic together in a small dish. Lightly brush each bundle with the mixture. The bacon will add a salty flavor but you can also sprinkle with pepper, as desired.
  • Cover the bundles with foil and bake for 30-40 minutes. Cooking time will vary based on the thickness of the beans. Remove foil and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until the bacon is crispy.
