Blue Cheese Green Beans

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 20 min.

Makes

6 servings

Bacon, blue cheese and chopped nuts make this my mom's favorite way to enjoy green beans. I always prepare this side dish when she's coming for dinner.

Ingredients

  • 6 bacon strips, diced
  • 1 pound fresh green beans, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans
  • Pepper to taste

Directions

  1. In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Using a slotted spoon, remove to paper towels. Drain, reserving 2 tablespoons drippings.
  2. In the drippings, cook and stir the beans for 8-10 minutes or until crisp-tender. Add the blue cheese, pecans, pepper and bacon. Cook for 2 minutes or until heated through.
