1 (16 ounce) package
frozen cut green beans
We added a little onion to the pan to sautee with the bacon, used fresh green beans, and added some seasoning salt, and these were delicious! We'll definitely make this again!
Made this one tonight to go with ham...made exactly as written except that I used a bag of frozen whole string beans. First of all, I feel that there was way too much butter in this...the bacon drippings already add enough fat/moisture. Mostly though, my issue was the almonds. I added them at the time that was directed...and they burned (and I only had the burner on the '2' setting)...so I suggest adding the almonds in at the very end (maybe toasting them in the toaster oven first). So pretty much just reduce the butter significantly & add the almonds at the very end!
Who knew green beans would have so much flavor! These were delicious. I did drain most of the bacon grease off, though. Adding butter is plenty. Also added my almonds nearer to the end. This is by no means meant for a fat-free diet. But, will make these again for sure!!
These were good except for just a couple issues. One.. the almonds burned. Two.. the only time it states a temperature is in the first step while cooking bacon. To remedy I would suggest the following: Cook the bacon and remove from skillet. Add the butter and the almonds. When almonds are golden brown, remove them and add the beans to the bacon drippings/butter mixture. Reduce to medium heat to cook the beans and stir them often. Crumble the bacon when it's cool enough to do so. Add bacon and almonds back into the skillet for the last two or three minutes of cooking (to reheat them). I will definitely make this again with the above modification. Very tasty and easy to make and everyone liked them.
This has now replaced the same old green bean casserole at our thanksgiving. I use fresh green beans and par boil them first, and I use sliced almonds instead of slivered. They stick to the beans better instead of falling to the bottom of the plate. These are the best green beans EVER!
love this recipe. have been making it for years for thanksgiving (served warm) & summer meals (served cold). I also add sundried tomatoes and feta cheese to it which really gives it zest
I do not know what all these other people are talking about - this recipe was AWESOME. I made it exactly the way the recipe called for. I had two helping and couldn't stop eating it. I might add onions next time, but this dish was wonderful! Thank you!
Loved this! I used peppered bacon. Yum. Next time I won't use so much of the bacon grease though. I like my veggies to have a more fresher taste. They were coated a little to much (with the grease) for my taste. Should have strained the grease off before putting in their serving tray. Will make again though!
