Green Beans with Bacon and Almonds


People either love or hate the classic green bean casserole for Thanksgiving. I actually like it but this is a different alternative for the big meal and it won’t hog your oven time. Green beans, bacon, almonds, butter…what’s not to love. I posted the recipe over at Tablespoon, so go check it out.

  6. Thank you for showcasing green bean in a different and delicious way, this would be a great addition to any holiday meal.

  7. Even though we don’t celebrate Thanksgiving over here in Australia I always have my parents and my hubby’s parents over for a traditional Thanksgiving meal…why…well it’s a long story…my hubby lived in Ohio for a year when he was in college and we are now very American as a result! Anyway, this looks like a brilliant recipe and I will definitely try it this year-thank so much!

    Best wishes,

  9. I’m such a big green bean fan. These sound amazing.

  10. I have wanted to know how to make those for so long. I can’t wait to give them a trial run prior to Thanksgiving. I’m sure they will make the cut. They are so pretty. (Can green beans be pretty?)

  11. I’m not crazy about the typical green bean casserole, in fact, I won’t eat it at all. This will be great to try this year in place of it. Thanks Christy!

  12. What a stunning recipe maybe the thing I ever taste in my life!

  14. Hi…love the website…found you on PInterest! Question: what can I substitute the bacon for…my friend is not a fan of b acon…

  15. I got this web page from my buddy who told me on the topic of this web site
    and at the moment this time I am visiting this web site and reading very informative posts here.

  16. I’ve been making something similar for years. I add dill weed which goes perfectly. I prefer using slivered almonds (they’re crunchier). You can also dress them up with sautéed mushrooms & onions.

  17. where is the revipe for green beans, bacon, and almonds?

  18. When I head over to the link the only directions are to cut the green beans in half and add cranberries for the holidays. The ingredients are there but no directions. I made this recipe last year on thanksgiving and wanted to make it again for Christmas and remember having had no issues. Maybe it’s tablespoon?

      Ugh. Yes. Tablespoon moved and jumbled everything. You just sautee the green beans until tender and then add the other ingredients. Sorry!
