I made this for Christmas Eve to accompany Prime Rib - perfect! I made a couple of changes: instead of green onions I used shallots and I added the juice from one half lemon at the end. The acid from the lemon brings out the flavor from the salty bacon and bacon fat. Also, I precooked the beans for about 3 minutes the day before and precooked the bacon and reserved the fat. This made it a bit easier the day of - although I think cooking the beans in the same pan as the bacon would make it even better with all the extra "bits".Read More
Green beans and bacon? What's not to like? I did not wipe out the pan as directed, just poured off the excess bacon fat leaving the recommended amount. What is nice about this recipe is that you can have everything ready in advance and then just put it all together a few minutes before service.
Very simple and quite tasty. Restaurant worthy, yet so easy!

This recipe is pretty good, and I usually don't eat a lot of green beans. Microwaving the beans made it really quick!! I am not a heavy salt person so 1/2 tsp was too much for taste. Probably a light pinch would suffice. I will definitely make this again.Read More
These were great...very fresh and tasty. I did steam in microwave using a ceramic dish w/glass lid and had to cook 11 min. Then, it sat in dish, while I was preparing others things, before I continued in pan with bacon. I did not blanche in cold water, I wanted them to keep warm. Turned out perfectly!Read More
