If you’re looking for a delicious side dish, well, you have come to the right place! This combination of bacon and buttered green beans is to die for! You will not have any leftovers, guaranteed.
I hated green beans growing up. I lie, I still hate green beans. But if you cook them in bacon grease and butter…OMG. This is amazing paired with some fish or any other lean meat. Let’s be honest, these green beans are not low fat, but they are still Paleo, Whole 30 compliant, and full of flavor!
