Bacon Wrapped Green Beans in the Smoker

bacon wrapped green beans

We love to find ways to make the Traeger an extension of our kitchen, especially in the summer when we don’t want to turn those ovens on. And this recipe for bacon wrapped green beans was a huge crowd pleaser. It’s super easy–you cannot mess this up. 

To cook these on the Traeger you will need a sheet pan, some toothpicks, and a pastry brush. Sautee the green beans and cook the bacon before wrapping them and placing them on the baking sheet. Once all the bundles are ready you can glaze them, put the pan in the smoker, and cook them until the bacon is crispy and delicious.
