HOW TO MAKE SMOTHERED GREEN BEANS

This dish for smothered green beans is a such tasty way to get your vegetables in! This vegetable side dish is almost impossible to turn down since it is baked in a sauce that is both sweet and salty, and it also has caramelized onions and crispy bacon.
If you are looking for a tasty meal to serve as a side dish, then you simply cannot go wrong with these wonderful green beans that have been covered in a sauce.
A meal that is bursting with flavor is prepared by roasting fresh green beans in a mixture that incorporates soy sauce, butter, and brown sugar, along with bacon and onions. You won’t need to spend much time preparing this dish, and while it’s cooking, you won’t need to do anything at all; this will give you more time to focus on the remainder of the dinner.
These green beans are a versatile side dish that can be made with just a few basic ingredients and go great with any of your favorite meals. They are quick and easy to make.

For this dish, I like to use fresh green beans, but you can simply modify it so that it works with frozen or canned green beans as well. If you are using frozen vegetables, just cook them until they are soft, then drain them. It is not necessary to prepare canned green beans by cooking them before using them; once they have been drained, they may be put directly into the casserole dish.
