I’ve been making this Green Bean and Bacon Casserole for a few years now and I’m still excited every time I put it in the oven. It makes the whole house smell amazing with the bacon mixing with the brown sugar/soy sauce/garlic sauce.
It’s super simple to throw together and is a staple on my Thanksgiving menu. The sweetness goes really well with spicy rubs for meat so consider this the next time you’re cooking a spicy dish and are in need of a side.
One of my friend’s moms had showed me these (^) awesome green bean and bacon rolls that she makes as appetizers a few years ago. They’re SO GOOD. I’ve made them as appetizers for get togethers and even for tailgates. They never last long no matter the location.
I decided that they were too good to keep as an appetizer and wanted to figure out how to make them for a side dish. She gave me her recipe and I threw it all together in a casserole dish and I’ve never looked back.
The casserole is so quick to put together, but has all of the same flavors. And as a big plus.. there’s bacon in it and you can’t so no to that.
