Bacon Roasted Green Beans

Please share:

Roasting veggies is by far the best way to eat them. They get all mushy and crunchy at the same time, and the flavor just explodes with a little hint of sweetness. I’m not kidding, I could eat roasted veggies for all 3 meals everyday. Freaking delicious. I thought about green beans. Would that work? Guess, what? You don’t know unless you try.

I was pleasantly surprised with this one. Not that I expected them to be gross, I just really had no idea if they would be good. I will say they need to be eaten straight out of the oven, and I could have maybe left ’em in to crisp up a little longer. Maybe a quick broil would be the trick. Anyway, you should try them, it’s a nice addition to the roasted veggie lineup.
