These Crock Pot BBQ Green Beans with Bacon are going to blow your mind! These sweet and tangy BBQ Green Beans are loaded with flavor and topped with bacon for the ultimate gluten-free side dish.
CROCK POT BBQ GREEN BEANS
If you are looking for a great new side dish to take to a potluck or even to pair with an easy dinner give these BBQ Green Beans a try. My husband always makes ribs and he had some leftover BBQ sauce so I was trying to come up with a side dish that we could use for his extra BBQ sauce. The idea came from another BBQ recipe I have for BBQ Bacon Beans, which are also delicious!
Bacon is the star in this recipe! I mean is bacon ever not the star in a recipe? The first step does take about 5 minutes extra but I promise cooking the onions in the bacon fat will be worth it. The bacon flavor infuses into the onions and the entire dish.

WHAT KIND OF GREEN BEANS SHOULD I USE?
You can use any version of green beans you want in this recipe. I used fresh green beans because I have a picky husband who loves fresh green beans! Canned green beans and frozen green beans will work great in this recipe and require even less work so feel free to swap those out for the fresh ones.
GLUTEN FREE SIDE DISH
This recipe is naturally gluten-free! All the ingredients in it are gluten-free. As always I make all of my recipes gluten-free because my husband has celiac disease which means he is allergic to gluten. You know all my recipes will be tested and served with only gluten-free products.
