Mississippi Green Beans

The Mississippi green beans are super easy to make, insanely yummy, and a perfect complement to any Southern meal.

Mississippi Green Beans

Mississippi green beans are the perfect blend of sweet and savory, and they are the easiest green beans you’ll ever make. They also happen to be my family’s favorite green beans, so I make them all the time.

What makes Mississippi greens beans so irresistible? The secret is in the sauce. The butter, EVOO, bacon, brown sugar and soy cook into a thick, sweet, smoky, salty syrup that melts into the beans during cooking and makes them over the top delicious.

Make ahead: These beans are perfect to make ahead. Simply prepare the sauce and pour over drained beans. Place in an airtight gallon ziploc and refrigerate overnight. The next day, bake or slow cook.

Bake or slow cook?  I’ve made these both ways, and there is really no difference in taste. I just do what suits my schedule.

Mississippi Green BeansIt taking these to someone’s home, I slow cook them in this casserole crock pot. The lid locks for easy transport, and the stainless exterior is nice enough to leave on the counter (plugged in and on warm) to serve guests if the party is not super formal.

These beans complement most any meat. I always serve them alongside this fab glazed ham,  Mitt Romney’s favorite meatloaf and this wonderful chicken tetrazzini.

If you try these, please let me know your thoughts; I love hearing from readers! As always, thanks so much for stopping by. Be blessed, and stay savvy!!!
