Jump to Recipe

The most amazing honey glazed bacon green beans are sweet, salty, crispy and fresh. They are a hit on the family table.

It’s a no from me when it comes to boring vegetables. Yes, I really love basic food now and then, as it can get overwhelming eating all the dishes that I make. But let me tell you, my vegetables must be different and just simply a taste bomb. This amazing honey glazed bacon green beans are an absolute hit at the dining table every time I make them. Friends and family cannot get enough of them. For my people with kids, they are absolutely in love with them.

What makes this dish so amazing?

It looks very basic and simple, but it’s simply not. It’s a full experience. The typical green bean taste combined with the salty bacon and then topped with the sweet dates are just full on perfect. In the one second, you’re tasting the crispy and salty bacon. In the next second you’re tasting the sweet dates bites. All topped with a decent sweet honey taste and a bit sauted onion. As we eat with our eyes too, garnished with pomegranate the beans look perfect. Heavenly good is all I need to say.
This recipe is perfect for special occasions such as Christmas. It is so simple in the making that you can easily eat it on a weeknight. The perfect source of vegetables is done in under 10 minutes and so versatile.
You can eat it with mashed potatoes and my delicious, crusted roast, for example.
