Bacon Wrapped Green Beans is the most PERFECT quick and easy stove-top Thanksgiving side dish. Leave the oven free for the main dish!
Actually, this is not only the perfect Thanksgiving side dish but for any festive dinner, family get-together, for dinner parties, Christmas, New Year’s Eve, cold winter days. Say it, just say it: Bacon Wrapped Green Beans! *angelical ahhhhh* That’s green beans wrapped in baaaacoooon guys! These beans don’t need any seasoning at all. The bacon gives all the flavor. Make sure to get higher-welfare pork bacon for the best flavor. Don’t go for the chain supermarket pre-packed cheap breakfast bacon. Go to your local butcher or a small farm outside your city to get the good stuff.
The best part of this side-dish recipe is that it is made on the stovetop. For big dinners the oven is usually booked for the whole day and I always look for side dish recipes that do not require any oven space and time. These bacon wrapped green beens made entirely in ONE skillet ON the stovetop. Yay for little dishes to wash later. There are always enough already.
I’ve eaten Bacon Wrapped Green Beans ever since I was a baby. My mom made these so often when she had people over for dinner. It is almost like a tradition. I’m sure you will love them! Thanksgiving doesn’t exist in Germany, so it obviously wasn’t for Thanksgiving but for Christmas, New Years or Easter for sure!
Top with some sliced almonds for super deliciousness. It gives the green beans that special little extra it needs to remain unforgettable.
