Buttered Brown Sugar Green Beans


Buttered Brown Sugar Green Beans

Buttered brown sugar green beans is the companion dish to my elevated Christmas version. You know, the one with fresh green beans bundled into haystacks and wrapped with a slice of real bacon.

This is the quick and easy recipe using canned beans and bacon bits, but no less tasty. It only takes minutes to prepare and represents the best of casual cooking. It’s another traditional recipe that is an essential part of our Thanksgiving feast.
