Bacon and Brown Sugar Green Beans

Bacon and Brown Sugar Green Beans recipe.

Brown sugar and red pepper flakes add a sweet-heat kick that everyone will ask for again and again. Double the recipe to make plenty.



  1. Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat about 5 minutes or until crisp.
  2. Place bacon on paper towels. Drain all but 1 tablespoon bacon drippings.
  3. Return skillet to medium-high heat; add beans, sugar and red pepper flakes. Cook for 6 to 7 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring occasionally.
  4. Top beans with crumbled bacon before serving.

Serves 6 | Prep Time: 10 min. | Cook Time: 15 min.

If using turkey bacon, add 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in Step 2.

Recipe may be doubled. For best browning results, cook beans in two batches before topping with bacon.
