A classic Thanksgiving side gets a makeover with this modern spin on green bean casserole. Gone are the condensed soup and canned fried onions. Instead, rich, smoky bacon joins sweet, caramelized onions and melted cheddar cheese to highlight the flavor of green beans.
Green beans can become a new favorite veggie in your household with the introduction of this dish. In this recipe, fresh green beans are roasted in bacon fat to bring out their natural nutty sweetness and deep green color. Combined with caramelized onions and broiled just long enough to melt the cheddar cheese, the resulting recipe will have everyone eating their greens.
