Since Rachel asked, I decided I should post this recipe, especially since I’m pretty sure I’ll be making them for Thanksgiving too.
Yeah, they’re that good.
My sister and I have been making these for years, adapted from some super fancy bacon wrapped green bean bundles. Forget the bundles, and just mix together a big pan of these. Everyone will thank you.
Granted, these are a true Southern vegetable in every since of the word, meaning they have loads of fat and probably zero nutrional value whatsoever.
Make them. Give thanks for butter. Give thanks for bacon. And have a very large drink.
Sassy Green Beans
- 4 cans of cut green beans, drained (can use 5 if serving a large crowd. I like french style)
- 1 stick of unsalted butter
- 1 cup of brown sugar
- 2 Tbsp. plus 1 tsp. of soy sauce
- 1 tsp. of garlic salt
- 8 pieces of cooked bacon, crumbled ( I’ve totally used precooked here, and it’s been just as tasty. No judgement here)
Pour green beans in a tall baking dish. In separate bowl melt butter and add sugar, soy sauce, bacon and garlic salt. Mix well. Pour mixture over green beans and stir to combine. Cover dish and bake for 50 minutes on 350 degrees. Stir twice while baking.
