These Glazed Bacon Green Beans are one of my family’s favorite side dishes!
One of the most popular side dishes on my website are my Bacon Glazed Carrots. This post gets thousands of views – especially around the holidays.
It’s sweet and salty and loaded with bacon. What’s not to love?!
My neighbor brought over a bunch of green beans from his garden so I thought I would try the recipe with green beans.
These turned out so incredibly good! I had to make a double batch because I know my guys would devour them…which they did.
This recipe is definitely a keeper! I’l be making it again and again!
