Arkansas Green Beans

Ingredients

  • 5 (15-ounce) cans green beans, drained (note: you can substitute a similar amount of frozen green beans, about 4 (12-ounce) bags, thawed, or you can use fresh green beans, too)
  • 12 slices bacon
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 7 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • almonds, for garnish

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place the drained green beans in a 9×13″ baking pan.
  2. Cook bacon in a frying pan on your stove top or in a microwave on a microwave-safe plate until bacon strips are cooked enough to chop into large pieces (they should be done, but not real crispy).
  3. Sprinkle the bacon pieces on top of the green beans. Combine the brown sugar, melted butter, soy sauce, and garlic powder in a small bowl.
  4. Pour this mixture over the green beans and bacon. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.
  5. Remove from oven. Garnish with almonds and serve.
