Brown Sugar and Bacon Green Beans

This side dish was a part of our Christmas dinner.  For Christmas, my family has steak, potatoes, stuffing and a vegetable.  I was in charge of the sides this year.  This recipe looked amazing.  And lets be honest, who doesn't like bacon and a little sugar with their veggies?

The dish was easy to make and was as good as it looks.  It's a perfect side dish for the holidays.  Enjoy!

1 (16 oz) package frozen green beans
6 pieces bacon, chopped
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
garlic salt, to taste
In a large skillet, fry the bacon over medium heat until done (but not quite crisp).
Drain off grease and add butter and brown sugar. Cook, stirring occasionally, over medium heat until the brown sugar has dissolved.
Place the green beans in a pot and fill with about 1 inch of water. Bring water to a boil and then place the lid on the pot. Steam the beans over medium heat until cooked through, about 5-8 minutes. Drain the water from the beans, season with garlic salt, and stir in the sugar and bacon mixture. Serve immediately.
If the brown sugar mixture starts to go hard, you can quickly reheat it before pouring it over your beans.

  1. This sounds awesome. We always serve green beans when we have steak & spuds and I normally sauté them in the bacon renderings. This is much healthier and my kids will finally eat their greens!
