This is another dish I’m bringing to the Thanksgiving dinner I’m attending. I’m really looking forward to trying these, not only in making them, but tasting them too. I’m drooling just looking at the screen!
Also, you get a double dose of recipes today because I love Thanksgiving! What’s your go to recipe?
Cheesy Potatoes as found on The Country Cook.
Whether I bring these or not, I plan to make these green beans too. Did you know green beans are my favorite green vegetable that is not a squash? And bacon? Who doesn’t like bacon… Again from The Country Cook…
Bacon Garlic Green Beans
- 6 bacon strips
- 1 pound fresh green beans rinsed, ends trimmed
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 6 garlic cloves minced
Cook bacon until crispy, reserve 1 tablespoon bacon grease and drain the rest. Crumble bacon.
Bring a large pot of water to boil, add green beans (water should be just above the beans) and 1/2 teaspoon salt.
Cook on medium-low heat for 5 minutes, drain the beans.
Heat reserved bacon grease and butter in a large skillet on medium heat.
Add minced garlic. Cook it while stirring constantly, for about 30 seconds.
Add crumbled bacon and green beans.
Saute on medium heat for about 1 minute to combine all ingredients.
Remove from heat. Taste and add more salt, if needed.
