Green Beans With Almonds and Bacon

My last post is the main dish (Oriental Noodle Toss with Black Beans) we will have for dinner this evening.  This is the vegetable we will have with it.  It is very easy and very good tasting!  My picky girls even enjoy it!

Here’s the recipe:

Ingredients
1 lb green beans
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup sliced almonds
3 slices bacon, cooked
1/4 tsp garlic powder
to taste salt
Notes / Directions
1 pound green beans
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup sliced almonds
3 slices of cooked bacon
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
salt to taste1 Snap off the tough ends and remove strings from green beans. Cut green beans in half.
2 In a large saucepan place green beans in 1″ of boiling water and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until tender. Drain.
3 Melt butter in a small saucepan. Add bacon, almonds, garlic powder, and salt and stir.
4 Pour sauce over green beans. Toss and serve.
5 Time Saving Tip: To save time use precooked bacon. Microwave precooked bacon for 30-60 seconds to make it extra crisp.
6 Tip: To make the green beans more festive for the holidays, add 1/4 cup of dried cranberries.
Happy Monday!
