Move Over, Green Bean Casserole! This Is How You Need To Cook Your Beans!

I don’t know about you, but I loooove bacon! I mean, I LOVE it. If I can add it into a recipe, I always do. That’s not to say I don’t like to eat healthy foods. Green beans have always been one of my favorite vegetables.

The classic green bean casserole is one of my favorite dishes to cook and eat at Thanksgiving. You know the one I’m talking about: green beans, cream of mushroom soup, and a can of crunchy fried onion strings. I have to say though, this recipe tops your average green bean casserole for me in a heart beat. That’s for one reason: bacon.

Don’t get me wrong, I realize this is not the healthiest way to eat your veggies, but it’s Thanksgiving, after all! This is not the holiday to be counting calories. The salty bacon makes this green bean side dish super rich in flavor, and there’s a lot of juice to keep all the ingredients moist and tender.

If you have picky eaters at home (a.k.a. the little ones), this is a surefire way to get everyone to eat their greens. Although it’s not in the recipe, you could still add a layer of those crunchy fried onion strings over the top of the casserole for an extra layer of texture.


Quick Tip: Use a slotted spoon to remove the bacon to save the grease for the beans.
