Recipe Variations

  • Change the Seasoning – Use different types of seasoning. We only used salt, but you can season with garlic salt, Italian seasoning or Season Salt.
  • Brown Sugar – If you would like your bundles a little sweeter, mix in some brown sugar with the maple syrup in a small bowl.
  • Bacon – You can use different flavors of bacon if you prefer. We used a classic bacon, but you can use a thick cut or a peppered bacon for added flavor.
  • Turkey Bacon – You can use turkey bacon instead of regular bacon if you prefer.
  • Drizzle Sauce – Top the green bean bundles with BBQ sauce or honey for a differently flavor.

How to Make Bacon Wrapped Green Beans 

Fresh green beans on a cutting board with the ends cut off and a plate of uncooked bacon on a platter

Step 1 – Preheat the grill over medium high heat (approximately 400 degrees F). Trim the ends of the fresh green beans off and cut the bacon slices in half.

Step 3 – Season the bundle with the salt.  Then place the bundles directly on the heat and cook for 10-12 minutes flipping every 2-3 minutes until the bacon strips is crispy and cooked through.

Recipe Tips

  • Grilling Bundles – Watch these closely so that they do not burn and rotate them regularly.
  • Trim Green Beans – Prepare the french green beans by trimming the edges. This allows the edges to be evenly and gets the dark parts off.
  • Washing Green Beans – Paper Toweling the green beans after washing them. You want them dry before adding to the grill.
  • Cut Bacon – Cut the bacon in half to evenly wrap around the green beans.
  • Wrapping the Green Beans – When we wrap the green beans with bacon, we like to wrap it one time around. This allows for the bacon to get completely cook and get crispy.
  • Prepare Grill – Make sure to preheat the grill so that it is hot and ready to grill the bundles.
  • Bundles – We wrap about 5 to 6 green beans per bundles. This will depend on the size of the green beans.
  • Green Beans – When picking out the green beans make sure to get the bright green color green beans.
  • Ice Bath – There is no need to give blanching the green beans prior to cooking them on the grill. Blanching green beans means that you would need to bring a large pot of water to a boil. Then place green beans in boiling water.

Bacon Wrapped Green Beans in the Oven

If you prefer, you can make these Bacon Wrapped Green Beans in the oven. They are just as easy to make and perfect when it is to cold to grill outside.

  • Prepare greens beans as indicated by washing and trimming them.
  • Take a bundle of green beans and wrap a slice of bacon around them. Secure the bacon with a toothpick.
  • Place the green bean bundles on a baking sheet. I like to line a baking sheet with foil for easy cleanup.
  • Once all the green bean bundles are on the baking sheet season them with salt and pepper.
  • Place the baking sheet in the oven and roast in a preheated oven of 400 degrees.
  • Bake for about 20 minutes or until cooked bacon is crispy and cooked through.
  • Serve and enjoy your baked bacon wrapped green beans with this Grilled Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin.

How to Store Leftovers

Refrigerate the leftover bacon wrapped green bean bundles in an airtight container for up to 5 days. When you are ready reheat, I like to place in my air fryer and reheat in the oven.
