“This is one of those dishes that tradition has snatched. Most everyone has a green bean dish on the menu for the holidays. The almonds are a nice detour from the usual ingredients.”

I would have rated this 5-stars for ingredients and only 2-stars for the cooking method--the idea of cooking the raw bacon in with the cooking water just didn't appeal to me. I sauteed diced bacon with minced garlic, then tossed in the beans, cooked crisp tender, and finished with the almonds, which I toasted. Now THAT'S good!

I revamped this recipe a lot...sorry. I cooked my beans as directed (leaving them slightly undercooked) only I added just a bit of bacon drippings to the water to add flavor. Meanwhile, I sauteed pearl onions & chopped pancetta in EVOO & a little butter until the onions were golden, deglazed the pan w/ a bit of chicken broth, added the green beans (drained) & sliced almonds... as well as a bit of Garlic Butter (recipe frm this site) that I had in the fridge. FANTASTIC!

Used frozen whole beans from Sam's Club and added a lot more slivered toasted almonds (Trader Joe's). Had to add a great amount of seasoning. I sauteed in butter as well as extra virgin olive oil and added fresh minced garlic. Also, seasoning salt and fresh ground black pepper. Without any of the above, this would have been blah. For this fact, I am giving the recipe a three. With my additions, it became a five.
