Bacon Green Beans have recently become a staple in my house. I love Green Beans, they are probably my favorite vegetable, We all LOVE Bacon!! Let's be honest, who doesn't? I do buy nitrate free/clean bacon and honestly think it taste better then the processed/chemical loaded bacon, but that I say preference. Bacon adds a great flavor to the green beans, but doesn't make them "greasy"
Recently with all the Romain and Lettuce recalls I started seeing a lot of memes. My favorite was "You have seen countless vegetable recalls over the last year and not one bacon recall, just saying." Sad, but true, Bacon is safer the vegetables (just kidding, kinda).
How to make Bacon Green Beans:
Start by washing and trimming your green beans (if not already done). Once prepped, add the beans to a mixing bowl. Chop up 7 pieces of uncooked Bacon into about 3/4 inch pieces. Add the bacon and the remaining ingredients. Toss until all the Green Beans are coated with seasoning and the Bacon is mixed in. You might need to separate the bacon if you cut mulitple pieces together. On a baking sheet place a sheet of parchment paper, and evenly spread the Green Beans on top. Cook for 20 minutes at 375°F, flipping after 10 minutes. Be sure to let cool, the grease from the bacon can make it a little hot!
Not only is this dish delicious but it is supper easy to make.Print
