Total time
A delicious green beans side dish, perfect for holiday meals.
Recipe type: Side Dish
  • approx. 2 pounds whole green beans (ends removed)
  • 4-5 bacon slices
  • ½ to 1 cup dried cranberries
  • ½ cup slivered almonds
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. In a large pan, cook the bacon until crispy. Remove bacon from pan and cut/crumble. Set aside.
  2. Place green beans (if frozen, thaw in microwave first) in the pan with the bacon grease and sauteƩ until heated through (don't overcook).
  3. Transfer green beans to a medium baking dish. Toss in bacon, cranberries, and slivered almonds.
  4. Serve warm immediately or place in the oven for about 10-15 minutes to warm before serving.
For holiday meals, it might not be possible to serve immediately. So under cook the green beans in the pan and then heat everything in the oven for just about 15 minutes (at between 250-350 degrees) before serving.
