“I adapted this recipe from one I saw in a magazine that required a lot of work," says Jackie Matthews from Yucca Valley, California. "This is much quicker and easier to prepare and tastes great!”

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 pounds fresh green beans, trimmed and cut into 1-1/2-inch pieces
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2-1/4 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 2-1/4 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 to 5 tablespoons real bacon bits
  • 4 to 5 tablespoons sliced almonds, toasted

Directions

  1. Place beans in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil; cook, uncovered, for 8-10 minutes or until crisp-tender.
  2. Meanwhile, melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in the brown sugar, soy sauce and Worcestershire sauce. Cook for 1 minute or until sugar is dissolved.
  3. Drain beans; add to the skillet. Cook and stir for 2 minutes or until heated through. Sprinkle with bacon and almonds; toss to coat. Serve with a slotted spoon.
