Beth's Easy Pleasy Green Beans

READY IN: 11mins
Recipe by BETHANY T.

These are so yummy--and oh so easy! I like to use frozen whole green beans versus the cut ones. If you can find the slender whole beans, that's even better! These can be made with fresh beans too, but you have to adjust the cooking time. Being that fresh bean season is so short, I usually use the frozen. For the sliced almonds, I really love "Roasted Garlic Caesar" Almond Accents made by Sunkist. These can usually be found in the produce or salad dressing section of your grocery store.

We really enjoyed the bacon and almonds with the green beans. I used fresh onion as opposed to the instant onion and I used reduced sodium bouillon. An excellent side dish that I will make again. I would really like to try this with fresh green beans when they are in season as they're a bit pricey right now. Thx Beth.
