Baked Green Beans & Bacon
These are the best Frozen Green Beans I have ever made! Don’t get me wrong, I have liked them fixed other ways but this way is now my favorite! They didn’t even taste like they were frozen by baking them with the bacon on top. They are full of so much flavor and they were simple and quick to make. I will be making them this way from now on! You can change this up by adding onions or leaving out the brown sugar if you want.
Spray a baking sheet with cooking grease.
Place the green beans in one layer close together.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Place the chopped bacon on top of the green beans making
sure the pieces are all separated so they can cook.
Sprinkle the brown sugar evenly on top of the green beans (optional).
Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for
25 – 30 minutes or until the bacon is cooked.
Remove from the oven, toss gently and serve.

You are so welcome! I can’t believe how great this turned out. I could have made a meal out of them!
Ever done bacon strips wrapped around asparagus? My best friend does it and loves it. She has promised when she cooks it again, she will have me over. It’s been a while though and I will say she quietly…”she isn’t the best cook” shhhhhh! Where as I have four children, 2 grown, 1 very picky teen, and a 11 year old that will eat anything. But with all the food allergies, gluten being one with two of the kids and myself, we haven’t explored too far with food.
No I haven’t tried that yet. What’s funny is I grow my own asparagus and I love it so much! Every year I want to do that and end up fixing it with bacon sprinkled on top. We cook 2#’s of bacon at a time, freeze the crumbled cooked bacon and I just take out what I need for whatever recipe or even salads. Makes for a quicker meal…lol
How do you freeze the bacon exactly? That would be good to have handy!
Oops! Just got a reminder from King Arthur. Next week is National Banana Day! 27th…
I will have to try and remember to post banana recipe that day!
This looks delicious!
They were unbelievably good! I will always make them this way from now on. Thank you so much Rebecca!
I bet they smell delicious too.
Oh yes….bacon! Thanks Linda!
Friends of our family were Hungarian. They used to get a large side of bacon and turn it on the spit on their outside grill and put crusty bread with butter underneath to catch the bacon juice. They really liked that as a treat.
I wish I was a friend of your family….hahahaha
One of my all-time favorites.
Mine too…now! All we ever did is buy canned beans and cook them then add vinegar. I am so glad we grew fresh and I froze them now!
I’ve been enjoying eating green beans lately I didn’t think to make them with bacon. This looks yummy I’ll have to try it sometime 😀
It adds a whole new twist to the taste. I don’t think I want them any other way now!
