Green Beans and Bacon – super easy to prepare dish with fresh green beans, bacon bits and garlic. An excellent flavorful side with few simple ingredients that brings a crisp fresh flavor to your holiday or weeknight meal!

We are down to few days before the holiday feast! And I know pretty sure how life has been too busy for most of us.

So I’m popping in with this super easy to prep dish that you can include in your holiday meal or even on your regular weeknight meal.

This easy Green Beans and Bacon is a great alternative to the ever popular holiday side  Green Bean Casserole.

If you don’t want to go the extra trouble of making a creamy sauce from scratch (cause from scratch always taste way better… ), then this no fuss green bean dish is a winner! And who can’t resist that bacon flavor infused on every strings of this crispy fresh green beans? I can’t, for sure. I even loved them bundled up like this  Green Bean Bacon Bundles here.

See how perfect green beans and bacon are together? It’s a healthy-ish yet sooo flavorful way to stuff more veggies.

 

To jazz up this dish a little more (oh yes, I have the knack for jazzing up ), saute some garlic cloves and a  diced onions in butter and bacon drippings before you toss in the cooked and drained green beans. An absolute winning combo that elevates the usual bland green beans into this delectable healthy strings.

Serve this as sides to this Prime Rib Roast dish or Slow Cooker Lamb Leg here for a merrier and chunkier holiday meal!

 

Happy holidays, everyone!

 

Tips and Notes:

  1. When cooking green beans in this recipe, cook them until they’re just tender crisp so they don’t end up soggy.
  2. You may use canned or frozen green beans in this recipe but I strongly suggest that you go with the fresh ones ’cause they have the very best flavors and textures.
  3. Do not completely discard all the bacon drippings. Just leave approximately a tablespoon in the pan as this a good replacement for butter and oil for sauteing.
  4. If you like to add a little bit of heat, you may toss in a few chili flakes instead of the creole seasoning.
