Dinner Little Dishes

Bacon Bean Bundles

There’s always something to be thankful for on Thanksgiving. Even if it’s just not being a turkey. – Unknown

Happy belated Thanksgiving, everyone! I’ve had a crazy few weeks and haven’t had much time to cook. However, Thanksgiving was a great opportunity to try some new recipes. These Bacon Bean Bundles are a sneaky way to get some veggies in (and they taste like dessert!)

INGREDIENTS: (I made a dozen bundles)

  • Large bag of green beans
  • 1 package of regular bacon (unless you prefer turkey bacon)
  • 1/2 cup dairy free butter (I used SmartBalance as usual because it melts the best)
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • Rosemary for garnish


  1. Preheat the oven to 400F.
  2. Melt the butter and brown sugar over low heat and stir well.
  3. Grab 4-6 green beans that are around the same length and wrap a slice of bacon around them.
  4. Brush the brown sugar and butter over the bundles, ensuring they’re really covered.
  5. Lay a piece of parchment paper on a cookie sheet to avoid a huge mess. Place the pan in the oven and bake the bundles for 20-25 minutes, depending on how crispy you like your bacon.
  6. Decorate with a few pieces of rosemary for a pretty holiday appetizer!

Viola! Enjoy!

About The Dairy QueenThe Dairy Queen

Just a New England gal stuck in rural Virginia. Can be found avoiding dairy at all costs. Talents include speed reading ingredient labels and enjoying ice cream via smell. If I could major in Spotify playlist construction and dairy free cooking, I would.

I have been blessed with a dairy allergy and have not touched a cheesy piece of pizza in years. Thus, here we are. I hope you find these recipes simple, inexpensive, and delicious. I have years of experience avoiding dairy, so hopefully my adventures can help you out.
