We are just about ready for Christmas at our house. The stockings are hanging. We’ve already done a little holiday visiting since the kids’ break started after school on Friday. And I’ve done some baking, too (and am looking forward to doing some more and trying out more of the Christmas cookie recipes we got from y’all!)
I might have to do a little more last-minute scrambling. There always seems to be something I forgot to wrap…or some gift that I’ve hidden that I can’t find. (Please tell me I’m not the only person who can’t find gifts that they’ve hidden away!)
Last week I mentioned that I try a little harder than usual around the holidays to put some vegetables on our family’s table. We definitely want to stay healthy for Christmas, and we’re usually eating a lot more snack food than balanced meals.
I promised last week to share one more green bean recipe—since there are only a couple of ways that my husband enjoys eating them! It has to be a pretty tasty dish to get him excited about eating green beans. I think the bacon in this recipe helps. :)
Tasty Green Beans and Bacon
3 cans of green beans, drained and rinsed well
1 chopped onion
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup vinegar
1 t. dry mustard
1/2 t. seasoned salt
4 slices uncooked bacon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Pour the green beans into a 9x13 casserole dish and top with the chopped onion. In a small bowl mix the brown sugar, vinegar, dry mustard, and seasoned salt. Pour the mixture over the top of the beans and onion. Cut each of the bacon slices in half and place on top of the beans. Bake covered at 350 degrees, then uncover and bake for 30 more minutes.
