These are really easy to make, I served them as a side with Petite Turkey Meatloaf for dinner, but this would also make an elegant side dish for Easter dinner if you double the recipe. You can prep them ahead of time, then roast them just before serving.

For a vegetarian option, you make Parmesan Roasted Green Beans. If string beans aren’t your thing, you can try these Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus.

As a kid, I never liked green beans because the only way I tasted them was boiled and overcooked. As I got older, I learned that I actually enjoy them if they are prepared right. Fresh green beans are a must for me, and I like them roasted or sauteed until tender and crisp. Add a little bacon to them and you can’t go wrong.

  1. How would you adapt this to air fryer? Same directions but cut the baking time in half?

  2. Our new favorite way to fix green beans. Super simple and easy, and tastes even better than the green beans and bacon we used to steam! Thank you Gina!

  3. Can this recipe be made ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator until time to bake? Would the cooking time change?

  4. Not only was this delicious but I got compliments on its gourmet appearance. It looks beautiful on the plate.  I, too, cooked the bacon halfway before popping this in the oven, came out perfectly! 

  5. Did this tonight for dinner. This is totally a keeper recipe.   I added basil leaves in there and what a wonderful taste.  I pre cooked the bacon half way and then grilled everything on my indoor grill.  So good !  thanks Gina! 

  6. We made this on the grill, using asparagus instead of green beans – DELISH!!!

  7. Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin

  8. i made them and they are fantastic, I also put them in the broiler at the end for about 3 minutes just to crisp them a bit

  9. I've made these several times but we put ours on the grill, they are Fantastic! I have a ton of green beans from my garden and was wondering if you could pre wrap them and freeze for a later time?
    Thanks

  10. I made these last night and they were fantastic! I love bacon with…well everything. 🙂 I did want to point out, though, that when I entered the Nutritional Info into the WW calculator that it calculated 2 Points+ so I was over 1 pt for my day, but they were well worth it.

  11. These were out of this world delicious!! Yum! I must have overcooked mine a bit because the bacon wasn't at all undercooked like I was a little worried about. Yummy side dish!

  12. I made these for Easter and followed the recipe. Doubled the recipe. They were gone in a flash. (I got two.) 🙂 Thanks.

  13. Hi there. The current Food on Friday on Carole's Chatter is collecting links to dishes using peas and/or green beans. I do hope you link this in. This is the link . Please do check out some of the other links – there are some good ones already. Cheers

  14. I did a quick read of this when you 1st posted. Grocery shopping today and decided to go with this for our veggie for Easter dinner. Somehow in my head I thought the bundles were asparagus! So, that is what I bought. What do you think of doing this w/asparagus vs green beans? I so do not like asparagus (everyone else does) – wish I had remembered it was green beans! Thank you!

    • I;ve done this with asparagus and it turns out just as well. I didn't blanche it first, just wrapped with bacon and put it in the oven for thirty minutes.

  15. I made this tonight and it was delicious! Everyone loved it. The bacon did get crisp on the bottom so I flipped them halfway through the time so it could get crispy on both sides.

  16. These look delicious! My husband doesn't really like green beans, but he does love bacon so these will be perfect!

  17. These look yummy. I am going to make for Easter. Bacon makes everything tastier.

  18. This looks delicious, but then all your recipes are! I grew up eating overcooked vegetables, too. Green beans were always canned, never fresh. When I started my own household, I always cooked fresh green beans. My daughter wouldn't eat them. One night, for some reason, I opened a can of green beans. She got so excited. Apparently she's been eating canned green beans at daycare for years. She loves them! Maybe overcooked veggies appeal to the young palate. I must admit I secretly like them, too. Reminds me of childhood. 🙂

  19. This looks amazing. I love green beans…and my family loves bacon! Perfect. 🙂

  20. I like the idea of bacon wrapped anything, but an absolute deal breaker is undercooked looking bacon. I would precook the bacon a bit before wrapping and roasting to ensure a crispier, less raw looking end result. Thanks for all your great recipes. I've made several and have enjoyed them all!

  21. I do the same thing with prosciutto! It's wonderful. I love this version because I always have bacon around, but rarely prosciutto…

  22. This will make a great side dish to a main meal.
    Thanks for posting.

  23. This looks super delicious!

  24. Try making bacon in the oven. Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper. Place a cooling rack over the cookie sheet. Place the bacon on the cooling rack. Bake at 400 for 15-20 minutes. The bacon doesn't stay cooking in its own fat, doesn't splatter and comes out flat.

  25. I'm glad I found another person who thought they hated green beans! As a child I hated them boiled with sauteed onions. I'd love to try this recipe, I've made your asparagus recipe before and it was to die for!

    Thanks!

  26. Green bean= best veggie ever…bacon=best food ever
    this recipe rocks my socks off!

  27. This just looks like the modern southern family reunion. Two southern food groups beans and bacon, plus they can be divided easily since they're wrapped up. I can't wait to try it this year. It'll be my first Adult = bring a dish year. This would also be amazing on thanksigivng, or grilled for bbqs. Limitless options!

    Unfortunately here at home the rest of the household prefers green beans the overcooked mushy way. While I can take them either way I prefer a crisp bean so I'm glad I'll have an "excuse" to make these for events, and they'll look right fancy too. Bacon wrapped = recipe box. lol Thanks so much!

  28. What does blanching the green beans mean?

  29. Pinning for later reminder – these look awesome! My hubby will LOVE!

  30. Green beans are one of my FAVORITE veggies! I especially love them ROASTED with salt – they taste like French Fries 🙂

  31. Love greens and bacon! Surely beats a casserole any time 🙂

  32. We've done this for years… it sure beats the Green Bean Casserole that Big Mamma makes for Thanksgiving!

  33. So simple, yet so sophisticated!

  34. Oh my… this sounds delish!! =O I'm gonna try it out really soon, for sure 😀

  35. This is perfect! I'm doing a nutrition challenge and for the first week I can't eat fruit, sugar, or bread. This totally fits the bill.

  36. Just wondering if the bacon crisps up? Looks delicious.

  37. Yum this looks so good!!!! Will have to try it with my garden beans this summer!

  38. Looks soo good and easy, I will give them a try and get the items next time I go to the store.
