  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Slice bacon in half (easiest to slice whole package at once right down the middle). Bundle 6 to 7 green beans together and wrap one slice of bacon around the middle of the bundle. Secure with a toothpick. Arrange bundles in one layer in a baking dish. Pour French dressing over all of the bundles - make sure to drizzle some on each bundle.
  3. Bake in a preheated 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) oven for 30 minutes or until the bacon is done.

These beans are awesome! I use Catalina dressing instead of French. I also use fresh beans because they are easier to handle and slightly cook the bacon before wrapping the beans. These always impress!

Boyfriend loved them... he hates vegetables so by soaking them in dressing and wrapping pork around it, he was thrilled. For someone who likes fresh food, it was serious overkill on the flavors.

My mother-in law makes these and they are always a holiday favorite. She does use Catalina Dressing and recomends letting them sit for a least 4 hours before cooking.

I have been making these beans for years. It's always requested for the holidays. I do agree with the suggestion of slightly cooking the bacon before rolling the bundles. For added zip,use peppered bacon and zesty French dressing

I made these as an alternative to the regular green bean casserole for Thanksgiving. People either loved them or didn't care for them. I used whole green beans that were frozen in their own steam bags which I steamed for about 1/2 the time recommended on the package before cooling and wrapping with bacon and then covered with fat free Catalina dressing. I would definitely make this recipe again.

I made these for thanksgiving this year. They were a crowd pleaser! Everyone remarked that they hope I make them again soon.

I didn't have any dressing, but this was really good without. Great idea. Everyone loved them!

This was VERY easy to make, and it tasted pretty yummy. I plan on serving it from time to time at dinner parties.
