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 bland vegetables. Yes, I love basic food now and then, as it can get overwhelming eating all the dishes I make. But let me tell you, my vegetables must be different and just simply a taste bomb. These 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 needs to be more. It's a whole experience. The typical green bean taste combined with the salty bacon and then topped with the sweet dates is perfect. In one second, you're tasting the crispy and salty bacon. In the next second, you're tasting the sweet date bites. All topped with a decent sweet honey taste and a bit sauteed onion. The beans look perfect as we eat them with our eyes, garnished with pomegranate. Heavenly good is all I need to say.
This recipe is perfect for special occasions such as Christmas. It is so simple to make that you can easily eat it on a weeknight. The perfect source of vegetables is done in under 10 minutes and is so versatile.
You can eat it with mashed potatoes and my delicious, crusted roast.
