Keto Bacon-Wrapped Green Bean Bundles
Looking for a unique keto side dish?
Try serving up these elegant-looking bacon-wrapped green bean bundles! They look super fancy, but they’re actually very simple to make, and they’ll steal the show if you make them during the holidays. The best part is they are insanely DELISH and keto-friendly!
I could seriously eat the whole pan, but I was nice and saved some for my family. 😉
Blanch. Roll. Bake.
I used a bag of pre-washed and trimmed green beans for convenience (you can use just standard green beans or the very thin ones, it’s up to you). If you do use the haricots verts (the thinner French green beans), the blanching time will be a little shorter, and you’ll obviously use more beans per bundle.
For this recipe, these green beans get blanched, dried, and then tossed with a dressing of olive oil, Dijon mustard, and a little Swerve sweetener, or a keto sweetener of your choice. Then just roll about 6-7 green beans with 1/2 a slice of bacon, and bake everything in the oven to finish!
Hip Tip: For easy cleanup, prep your baking sheet with foil or parchment paper first.

Little bundles of tender green beans wrapped in crispy bacon!
- 1 pound green beans, washed & trimmed

The result is a little bundle of tender green beans that melt in your mouth, along with delicious and crispy bacon! I am definitely making these again for Thanksgiving, and you can even blanch the green beans a day or two ahead of time to prep for the oven on Thanksgiving day.
