Garlicky Bacon Green Beans

Updated: Nov 23, 2019


Prep the bacon, mince the garlic and trim the green beans the night before to ensure the quickest time possible for this side dish! The salty bacon, sweetness from the roasted garlic, and peppery bite from the black pepper make this dish a perfect side for a turkey or prime rib. This recipe won for the vegetable dishes at our last Thanksgiving!

2 tsp pepper
