    Baked Maple Bacon Green Beans – cooked and ready to serve.

    I have to admit I had never had baked green beans before and was kind of scared this recipe was going to ruin my fresh green beans – but I have to tell you I was tempted to try it. I’m glad I did too because although this is not going to be the main way I cook green beans from the garden, it is certainly worth doing from time to time. The green beans tasted good but were a bit on the sweet side for my taste. They looked elegant wrapped in bacon and so for a special meal, this recipe is ideal. A little prep work is all it takes, then they bake in the oven right along with your other food. While I admit the photo above doesn’t look great, believe me when I say it was the lighting in my kitchen.

    Here is what you need:

    • 1 pound of fresh green beans
    • 1 stick of butter
    • 4 to 6 Tablespoons maple syrup
    • Salt
    • Pepper
    • Bacon

    Fresh green beans with both ends removed.

    Begin by rinsing the fresh green beans off under cold running water. This is necessary to do because sometimes faded green bean flowers, dirt or bugs are stuck to the outside of the bean.
