Busy moms with busy families know how hard it is to come up with a healthy dinner every single night. I'd like to say I am one of those awesome moms that meal plan and prep freezer meals for a month in advance and just toss them in the crock pot every day of the week. But, that's not me. Not at all, in fact you can pretty much guarantee that I will be making a last minute run to the market for some random but necessary ingredient. However, I am the Mom that always makes sure my girls have a balanced dinner, 5 nights a week, we have a vegetable on our plate.
For me, my favorite go-to side is a vegetable. The way I see it, if I don't offer vegetables to my family, they will probably never eat them. So, not only are we eating fresh green beans, I'm wrapping them in bacon too. How are they going to say no to eating a vegetable wrapped in a little bit of bacon?
It really is an easy side to make. Here's what you need to do:
Boil the green beans until they start to become tender.
Wrap a bunch of green beans in bacon sliced in half.
Set in a pan on medium high heat until the bacon cooks through, turning once.
That's it. Easy and delicious and you get a vegetable thrown in too. I also added some toasted garlic bread as another side. Because, what's lasagna without some garlic bread? They pretty much go hand-in-hand. I like to put Stouffer's Lasagna in the oven when the girls are finishing up their homework and take my time getting the sides done. The bacon wrapped green beans take a total of 20-30 minutes from start to finish which includes boil and cook time.
