If you’re looking for a delicious side dish for any meal ranging from a casual BBQ to a fancy Thanksgiving dinner, then these bacon green beans are perfect! Keto, Paleo, Whole30, gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free.
Thanksgiving is almost here in the US, which is so hard to believe. I know I say this over and over, but I truly can’t believe how quickly it came this year. Getting older, man…
So if you are in need of one additional side dish to complete that perfect holiday meal, then I do highly recommend this tasty bacon green bean dish.
Plus, it does not require any of that precious oven space, because we all know how limited that can be on turkey day, am I right?
Trying to simplify as much as possible to reduce stress and overwhelm on the big day is definitely welcome, if you ask me. Well this dish has you covered there as well, because it only takes about 15 minutes from start to finish!
Start by simply steaming your green beans until they are cooked to your liking. I enjoy mine a little on the crispy side, so I steamed them for about 5 minutes, but anywhere from 5-8 minutes should be good.
Drain the excess liquid, once they are cooked to your liking. Toss in some bacon grease, then some precooked and crumbled bacon, and cook for just a few minutes, to let all of that bacon-y goodness soak in. Top with just a little sprinkle of salt, and you’re all set!
I hope everyone has a genuinely wonderful holiday surrounded by those you love!
