Grilled Green Beans with Bacon

At the lake over the weekend, my mom’s garden was bursting with beans. They’re great as a simple side with bacon. (Bacon makes even the best things better.)


1 lb green beans, trimmed
3 slices of bacon, uncooked


We have a vegetable griller, which we used. If you don’t have this, a big cast iron skillet will do. Cook the three pieces of bacon in the skillet on medium heat. Once done (about 5-7 minutes), take out the bacon and set aside. Leave most of the grease (discard some if the bacon is too fatty), and throw in the beans. Cook for 5-8 minutes, or until the beans are cooked through. Cut up the bacon, and throw them back in the pan. Salt and pepper your beans. Voila, a crowd pleasing and easy side dish.
