If you are looking for another way to have green beans then you should try this recipe. It is really easy to make but needs about 40 minutes to cook, so get the rest of your dinner ready while they are in the oven. The flavors blend very well. I like the sweet and salty that come from the glaze and the bacon.
- 5 (15-ounce) cans green beans, drained (note: you can substitute a similar amount of frozen green beans, about 4 (12-ounce) bags, thawed, or you can use fresh green beans, too)
- 12 slices bacon
- 2/3 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
- 7 teaspoons soy sauce
- 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
Cook bacon in a frying pan on your stove top or in a microwave on a microwave-safe plate until bacon strips are cooked enough to chop into large pieces (they should be done, but not real crispy). Sprinkle the bacon pieces on top of the green beans.
Combine the brown sugar, melted butter, soy sauce, and garlic powder in a small bowl. Pour this mixture over the green beans and bacon. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Remove from oven and serve.
I used fresh green beans so the first thing I did was wash them and pinch off the ends.
Next make the glaze. Mix your brown sugar, soy sauce, melted butter and garlic powder in a small bowl.
Get your bacon cooked. I did mine in the microwave but you can do it in a skillet or in the oven.
Put the green beans in a baking dish and sprinkle the bacon over them.
Pour the glaze over the beans and the bacon . Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 40 minutes or until tender.
Enjoy! I served mine with a Parmesan Crusted Pork Chop.
