Maple Bacon Green Beans

Maple Bacon Green Beans

November 18, 2014 1 By admin
Thanksgiving is a little over a week away and I can’t believe it! Does anyone else feel like this year has flown by?! I can’t wait to see my family and friends and EAT! The food is my favorite part of the holiday season, if we’re being honest…

However, my family tends to always make the same traditional Thanksgiving dishes year after year. Not that I don’t absolutely love the food, but I feel like it would be nice to spice things up a bit. Green bean casserole is not really my style but maple bacon green beans ARE my style!
