Double the recipe and it makes a GREAT potluck dish.....it's super tasty even at room temperature (be prepared to share the recipe!!!)
GREEN BEANS and BACON
2 pounds frozen green beans (thawed)
1/2 pound bacon, fried crisp, drained and crumbled
1/4 cup of butter
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup of soy sauce
3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Thaw the green beans and drain if there is any extra liquid.
Fry the bacon until it is almost crispy, drain well, then cut into pieces. Recipe calls for 1/2 pound, but I've been known to use a whole pound on occassion. 😏
Heat the butter, soy sauce, brown sugar, pepper and garlic powder. just until the sugar is well dissolved.
Place green beans in a ungreased baking dish, top with crumbled bacon, then drizzle the soy-brown sugar mixture evenly over everything.
Bake in pre-heated 350 oven (uncovered) for 40 minutes.
