Author Coco and Ash


  • 1 lb fresh green beans (ends trimmed)
  • 6 slices of bacon (cut into small pieces)
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp each: salt, pepper, garlic powder


  • Bring a pot of water to boil and boil your green beans for 5-8 minutes. (5 if you like them very crisp)
  • Remove the green beans from the boiling water and set aside to drain on a paper towel. (You don't want them to be too wet or it will splatter like crazy when you add it to the bacon mixture)
  • In a large skillet over medium heat, cook your bacon pieces until they are slightly underdone then drain off the bacon grease. 
  • Bring the skillet with the bacon back to the heat and add your butter, brown sugar, and seasonings and stir until everything is melted together. (Just about 2 minutes)
  • Add your green beans to the skillet and toss to coat with the bacon mixture. 
  • Enjoy!!
