If you’re looking for a delicious side dish, check out these easy Bacon Green Beans featuring a mouthwatering caramelized bacon sauce! This dish pairs well with both turkey or ham so it is perfect for any holiday or family gathering.
2 pounds fresh green beans, trimmed (the 2 lb. bag from Costco works perfectly!)
1/2 pound bacon, cut into one inch pieces
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup brown sugar
Directions: Cut and cook bacon in a skillet until not quite done. Remove a little of the oil but keep a few tablespoons in skillet. Add brown sugar, ketchup, and Worcestershire sauce to skillet and mix. Place green beans in a 9 x 13 casserole dish and pour bacon mixture from skillet over green beans. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for about 35 minutes until beans are tender. Serves about 8-10.
Note: You can replace fresh green beans with drained green beans from a can. The texture is just a little different (more tender); also note that you can reduce the baking time a little if using canned beans.
