Everything is better with bacon….this phrase I wholeheartedly believe in. For example, green beans, by themselves are not the greatest, in my opinion. If you want opt out of drowning them in cream of mushroom soup, try this recipe. It isn’t going to win any health conscience awards, but your taste buds will certainly cheer!
Arkansas Green Beans
One bag frozen green beans (I prefer French cut)
7 ( or more if you prefer) slices pre-cooked bacon
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup butter, melted
7 teaspoons soy sauce
1 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Place green beans in a casserole dish
Cook bacon according to directions, normally one minute, until crisp. Crumble bacon
Combine the brown sugar, melted butter, soy sauce and garlic powder in a small bowl. Pour the mixture over the green beans and sprinkle crumbled bacon on top.
Bake uncovered for 40 minutes
Ps - I normally like to pair this side dish with grilled chicken or fish!
