Do you get tired of boring plain green beans? If so, you’ll love the flavor punch of this sauteed green beans with bacon, cranberries, and almonds recipe!
- 3 - 4 slices of Archer Farms Applewood Thick Cut Bacon
- 1 12oz bag Archer Farms Green Beans (found in fresh produce section)
- 1 Tablespoon unsalted butter
- Salt & pepper to taste
- 1 3oz packet Archer Farms Cranberries & Sliced Almonds Salad Topper - Use as much as desired. I usually go with about half the package.
In a large skillet over medium-low heat, cook the bacon until mostly crisp.When adding to green beans, I don't like to have it be super crisp, but you can, of course, cook it to your liking.
Once bacon is cooked, remove it from the pan and place it on a plate lined with paper towel to absorb excess grease. Leave about 1 - 2 tablespoons of bacon fat in the pan.
Sautee green beans in the bacon fat until crisp-tender, or your desired doneness, about 3 - 5 minutes. In the meantime, chop or crumble the bacon.
Once green beans are cooked as desired, turn off the heat. Add the tablespoon of butter and bacon to the green beans. Salt and pepper to taste and then stir everything together.
Place green beans in serving bowl and sprinkle with cranberries & sliced almonds. Serve immediately or cover with foil and keep in a warm oven until serving.
These green beans are also delicious without the cranberries & nuts if you have guests that are allergic. I usually serve half without or keep the topping on the side just in case.
