Sweet Green Beans

Sweet Green Beans

These green beans are sure to be a favorite with everyone! At the “big house” (Duggar home), we’d usually serve these as a side with beef brisket and party potatoes! This recipe makes one, large industrial size pan, or two 9×13″ pans and serves about 20 people as a side.

5 lbs. green beans, whole, frozen

1 lb. turkey bacon, cut into chunks (or cook before for crispy bacon)

2 cups brown sugar

1 cup butter or margarine

2 teaspoons garlic powder

1 teaspoon salt

Grease two 9×13″ pans (or one large industrial pan). Dump frozen green beans into pan. Melt butter and add all remaining ingredients to pan. Stir. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-45 min.

    Looks delicious! Can’t go wrong with green beans and bacon.

    My husband makes this on holidays but he makes the whole thing in a skillet. Yum!

    My recipe calls these Arkansas green beans 🙂

    I made this same thing last night. People went wild over it. Only difference is that I used real bacon (turkey bacon just doesn’t add enough flavor to recipes for me and I LOVE turkey bacon) and I added some soy sauce. The recipe can be found on under Arkansas Green Beans. They are amazing!!!!
