Bacon Jammin’ Green Beans

Keto Side Item Recipes > Keto Recipes

Green beans are one of my favorite things to eat when they’re fresh, and I just don’t eat enough of them. When I get them, I almost always pair them with bacon. Yeah, sure, they’re awesome with garlic and parmesan, but who can resist the bacon?
