Bacon, bacon, bacon. I love the smell of bacon – reminds me of a hearty weekend breakfast meal. And while I love the smell of bacon, I love that sizzling sound of bacon on a hot pan even more. Don’t you agree?
This dish itself is a super super easy side dish to make and … quick. It doesn’t require oil and any other seasoning aside from the basic salt and pepper. Basically, the oil comes from the bacon itself and that’s what make this dish so aromatic and just hands down YUM!
Saute Green Beans with Crispy Bacon
300 g green beans, heads & tails trimmed
100 g diced bacon
100 g onions, chopped
salt, to taste
freshly cracked black pepper, to taste
1. Boil green beans in salt water for 8 – 10 minutes, or until crunchy tender. Drain and immediately place in a large bowl of ice cold water (to stop the cooking process).
2. Heat up a pan over medium heat. Sauté diced bacon until crispy golden. During this process, the bacon will release much of its oil and cook. Add chopped onions and sauté until soft and golden. Then add the beans and fry for another 1 minute. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve.
