Brown Sugar Bacon Green Beans

These green beans are to die for! Seriously they are so delicious. When we had our early Thanksgiving cooking extravaganza we made these as a side. 


  • 1 lb fresh green beans
  • 2 strips bacon chopped 
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard (yes…seriously)
  • 1/4 cup chopped onions

This recipe is really simple to make. First you’ll want to boil the green beans until they are easily pierced with a fork, but don’t overdo it because they will be cooked more in a pan with the other ingredients. Once they are ready, drain them and rinse with cold water and set them aside. Next start cooking the chopped bacon in a pan on medium heat (6-8 setting), just cook until browned and not too crispy. Leave the grease and add the onions, garlic, brown sugar, and Dijon mustard and mix until a sauce is formed and is bubbling lightly. Now add the green beans and cook while mixing until evenly coated, this will take about 5 minutes. 

That’s it! It’s so simple but you won’t be disappointed! This will be a great side for your upcoming holiday feasts!
