I didn’t grow up eating green bean casserole, in fact most the vegetables I ate growing up came in a can.
However, I do remember the first time I had fresh green beans at my Grandma’s house. She whipped up a dish that as soon as I tasted, I proceeded to destroy my serving and quickly ask for seconds.
I remember there was bacon and these small potatoes that tasted like heaven. I seriously started wondering what the heck my mom had been cooking for us the whole time because it never tasted like this.
This Green Beans with Bacon and Mushrooms recipe is pretty simple and a homage to my grandmother’s recipe.
I hope that you enjoy it.

Simply divine!!!! And I love the way fresh green beans taste so I have to make it.
Oh, that looks delicious!
Those look delicious!! I’m going to have to try that recipe.
Yummy! I will try this without the mushrooms!
Looks good, but I would want some nuts (since my ex has been gone, I can add them to nearly everything like I like to & no one is going to complain…lol).
These look so fresh and crisp!
Ooh, bacon. That makes everything taste good!
I love green beans and these look delicious.
I adore green bean casserole, even though beans & canned soup isn’t exactly the most nutritious way to eat my veggies. But a nice simple green bean dish like this is much better!
Not a fan of mushrooms, but I love the rest!
Bacon is amazing with anything!! This looks great!
two of my favorites! 🙂
Mmm, that looks tasty!
YUM!!! I love to make stuff with fresh green beans so I will be trying this soon.
Now this looks good. I’ll have to try this out.
I just realized that this is the very dish I ordered from New Seasons! It was delicious and I used my leftovers for a vegetarian Shepherd’s Pie.
This recipe looks delicious AND it fits the paleo autoimmune protocol. So, thank you! I just started a weekly Paleo AIP Recipe Roundtable through my blog, and I would love it if you linked up this recipe. I’m trying to expand resources for the AIP community.

Thanks for sharing that Eileen. I’m off to check it out.
I made this yesterday for Thanksgiving. My whole family and I loved it!
Thanks so much for sharing that Laura! I geeked out and made green bean casserole but this is one of my favorite recipes.
Looking forward to making this recipe. But wondering — When do you add the thyme – or is the thyme just decorative?
It’s just decorative hun
