Grilled Bacon Wrapped Green Beans

The trick to getting picky eaters to eat veggies? Add bacon! This recipe from Maebells coats crisp bacon and green beans with a tangy, sweet marinade for a side dish you will want to make over and over again. If you don’t own a grill, put your oven to work instead — it works equally well!

Ingredients for servings

    Grilled Bacon Wrapped Green Beans

  • green beans ends trimmed

  • 4 slice thin-cut bacon cut into thirds

  • 3 tablespoon steak marinade certified gluten-free if necessary

  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar

  • 2 tablespoon crumbled blue cheese


  • Heat a grill to 400ºF.

  • Separate green beans into bundles of 5–6 beans. Wrap each bundle with 1/3 slice of bacon, and secure with toothpicks.

  • In a small bowl, combine marinade and brown sugar, and microwave 15–20 seconds, until sugar is dissolved.

  • Brush half the marinade on the bundles.

  • Grill bundles for 3 minutes, turn and grill for 3 minutes more. Remove from grill when bacon is crisp and green beans are tender and lightly charred.

  • Brush with remaining marinade, and top with blue cheese.
