Delicious & Zero fuss green beans

Outsmart the picky eaters and the kiddos in your family by serving them this delicious, tender & sweet green bean recipe. They are made with my all-time favorites bacon and brown sugar. It’s so incredibly flavorful and makes the perfect side dish, especially for holiday meals.

BROWN SUGAR GREEN BEANS WITH BACON

Ingredients

2 lbs fresh green beans, ends trimmed

4-6 strips bacon, chopped (may sub turkey bacon)

⅔ C brown sugar

2 Tbsp dijon mustard

1 Tbsp minced garlic

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper

Directions

1. Toss beans into a large pot and cover beans with water. Cover pot and bring to a boil over high heat. Boil until beans are tender, but not soggy (they are going to get cooked a bit longer later on so you don’t want them overcooked at this point, just to the point they can be easily pierced with a fork). Carefully pour the beans into a colander to let the water drain and rinse the beans in cold water. Set aside.

2. In a skillet, cook bacon over medium-high heat for six-eight minutes until fully cooked but not yet crispy. Next add the brown sugar, dijon mustard, and garlic to the pan and stir until all ingredients are combined. Add green beans and continue to stir until sauce is bubbly and green beans are thoroughly coated in the sauce four-six minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve hot.
