Sweet Green Beans

This would be a great side dish for Thanksgiving--or really any night you want to indulge a little bit.  It's based on a recipe from AllRecipes, but I cut down on the fat substantially in this one (if you can believe that), and it was so yummy.  I loved the sweetness of the dish.

Sweet Green Beans

1 (14.5oz) can green beans, strained
2 strips bacon
1 Tsbp butter, melted
1 Tbsp brown sugar

Preheat oven to 350.  Spray a 9"x9" baking dish with cooking spray, and pour strained green beans in dish.  On a plate lined with paper towels, partially cook the two slices of bacon in the microwave for 1-1.5 minutes.  Crumble into pieces and put in baking dish with green beans.

Stir brown sugar into melted butter, and pour mixture over beans and bacon, stirring to coat.  Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until bacon is cooked through and dish is hot.

Pour strained green beans in baking dish.
