I like to say that the secret ingredient to home cooked food is love. But the truth is, it’s butter. Or bacon. Or, in this case, it’s both. The bacon adds rich, salty flavor to the beans while the butter turns their outsides crisp and perfect. Just a little bit of prep and 30 minutes in the oven takes this veggie dish from meh to YEAH. These beans will bring ’em to the table, y’all.

    1. Hi, Bailey! Yes! That’s what we do. Prep them completely the night before and then bake before serving. Enjoy!

  1. I am going to make these. Would like to know if the green beans should be blanched first and the bacon precooked a bit to ensure both ingredients will cook in the 30 minutes. Thanks.
