Bacon Green Bean Casserole
Elevate the flavor of Grandma’s green bean recipe with bacon. A spoonful of bacon in this Bacon Green Bean Casserole makes the vegetables go down – easier.
1 1/2 lbs fresh green beans, trimmed and cooked until tender
1 (10-3/4 oz) can cream of mushroom soup
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 1/3 cups French fried onions, divided use
1/4 cup red bell pepper, finely diced
8 slices cooked bacon, crumbled
In a mixing bowl, combine beans, soup, milk, Worcestershire sauce, black pepper, 2/3 cup of the onions, 6 of the slices of crumbled bacon, and red bell pepper. Transfer to a 1-1/2 quart casserole dish.
When ready to cook, start the Traeger grill on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Set the temperature to 350 degrees F and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes.
Cook casserole until the filling is hot and bubbling, 35 to 40 minutes.
Top with remaining onions and the last 2 slices of crumbled bacon and cook for 5 to 10 minutes more, or until the onions are crisp and beginning to brown. Serve, enjoy!
