Bacon Roasted Green Beans

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.
