GBP's 101 Easy EVERYDAY Recipes ~ Company Green Beans

Wednesday, June 1, 2011

Sharing the next recipe I prepared for my review of the newly released 101 Easy Everyday Recipes -- Company Green Beans! These were perfect for me -- yummy, easy AND very low carb diet friendly. I served these on the side of grilled meat and thought they were simply a perfect sidedish. Since I used frozen green beans, I thought my baking time would need adjusting but not so. This recipe is my new favorite way to prepare what is already one of my favorite veggies!! Don't let the name fool you either, while these are good enough to serve to company, be sure to make them often just for your family!

Company Green Beans

3 slices bacon, crisply cooked, crumbled and 1 T. drippings reserved
2 tsp. garlic, minced
1/4 c. red onion, finely grated
2 14-1/2 oz. cans French-style green beans, drained (I used frozen beans)
1 tomato, chopped
salt & pepper to taste
1/2 c. shredded sharp Cheddar cheese

In a skillet over medium heat, saute garlic and onion in reserved bacon drippings until slightly softened. Remove from heat and stir in green beans, tomato and seasonings to taste place in greased 8"x8" baking pan and sprinkle with cheese. Bake, covered, at 400°F for 15 minutes. Uncover, reduce heat to 350°F and bake an additional 15 minutes. Serves 4 to 6.
