Our family got together on Sunday like everyone else did for Easter. I wanted to make a few things for the gathering so I made a coconut cake, chocolate chip cookies, and appetizer and green beans. Well, lets face it, green beans are boring! I don’t like boring! Thank goodness for the food network website. I found a recipe by Pioneer Woman that was awesome. You have to try it.
All you need is:
2 lbs of fresh green beans (ends trimmed)
1 sweet onion chopped (larger chop so onions don’t burn)
1 lb of raw bacon (chopped)
olive oil for drizzling
salt and pepper to taste
Put green beans on a cookie sheet sprinkle onions, olive oil and bacon over beans. Mix with your hands. Salt and pepper to taste. Bake for 18-20 minutes at 325 and your done.
These beans were a huge hit. Not a lot of work but you get a lot of flavor!
I pasted the link to the food network page if you would like to watch Pioneer Woman make the beans. She used 4 lbs of beans and I used 2 lbs. Enjoy!!!
