Hey everyone!! It’s Alli again from Tornadough Alli! I’m so happy to be sharing here with Rachael again this month! I cannot even fathom how quickly the Holiday’s are coming up, last time I checked it was back to school and here we are with Winter fast approaching! The leaves have fallen, the air is crisper and Fall is in full swing.
I’ve always been a big fan of Green Bean Casserole and it’s absolutely one of the things that I HAVE to have for Thanksgiving. A few years ago I made these Green Bean Bundles with Mushroom Gravy and have been hooked ever since. It’s a total play on the Green Bean Casserole for those of you who love the taste, but want to think a little more outside the box of traditionalism.
Fresh green beans are wrapped in bacon and placed a top of a homemade mushroom gravy and baked until tender and crispy. The Mushroom Gravy absolutely gives this dish a depth of flavor that is to die for! I can’t help but want to lick it off my plate! Is that a little much? I’m sure there are people who can relate with me though on that front!
One good thing about this recipe that it can easily be doubled for larger family gatherings if you choose to do that! And with how good this stuff is making more is always highly encouraged! Trust me 🙂
My husband always grows a garden each year and our bumper crop seems to be our (his, I don’t have a green thumb in me) green beans! We always get oodles of them and they are seriously so good, so we continue to grow them each year because they are the perfect vegetable to have on hand for so many different meals!
I don’t think you’d be surprised to know that this recipe whips up in less than an hour from start to finish! We adore quick meals in our house and anything that we can make that utilizes fresh ingredients, easy to assemble, and low maintenance is a winning dish in my book!
So if you’re looking for a tasty, easy and fun option to switch it up this Thanksgiving or for just a great side dish then these Bacon Wrapped Green Bean Bundles are exactly what you need! Giving a fun spin on a classic dish, these are elegant looking without all the hassle!
