This Crack Green Bean Casserole is delicious! A sweet sauce with soy and brown sugar, along with crispy bacon combine for a heavenly side dish that is a favorite at family gatherings. You can easily double and triple this recipe for a crowd.
I love how quick and easy this recipe is to make. The ingredients are simple and you could easily pre-cook the crispy bacon the day ahead. Make sure you give it a good stir when it's done to spread the sweet sauce over all of the green beans and bacon.
Green beans are a staple at our family gatherings and I have a few other favourites, like Paula Deen's green bean casserole (a traditional green been casserole, with cream of mushroom soup), or these green beans with sour cream. All delicious, depending which flavors you prefer. They are all suitable for a holiday meal such as Thanksgiving dinner.
I hope that you enjoy these crack green beans with bacon as much as we do!

Cook bacon, just until crispy. Drain and set aside. Wondering what to do with that bacon grease? My friend, Eliza has a great article about what to do with bacon grease!
Drain canned green beans and place in 9x13-inch casserole dish (no need to grease the baking dish).
In a separate small bowl, combine brown sugar, melted butter, soy sauce and garlic powder.
Pour over green beans. Top with cooked bacon.
Bake in 350°F oven for 40 minutes.
