Original recipe yields 4 servings

Directions

  1. Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slice on a paper towel-lined plate. Let cool and crumble bacon. Reserve 1 teaspoon of bacon drippings.
  2. Place a steamer insert into a saucepan, and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Cover, and bring the water to a boil over high heat. Add the green beans, recover, and steam until just tender, 3 minutes.
  3. Whisk together olive oil, Dijon-style mustard, vinegar, bacon drippings, and shallot in a bowl. Toss hot, steamed green beans in a bowl with the dressing and crumbled bacon, and serve.

The idea of raw shallots didn't appeal to me, so I sauteed them briefly in the bacon fat. Aside from that I prepared these as the recipe directed with its interesting and different ingredients. Unfortunately, neither hubs nor I cared for the tang of the vinegar and would have much preferred this without.

I made this recipe for Thanksgiving and it was a huge hit with all 16 people. Funny since the green veggie is usually overlooked on Thanksgiving!I made it in advance, re-heated and tossed w/ dressing & bacon crumbles right before serving. I added a few more pieces of bacon, to crumble on top. I'm sure I'll be making it again. Thanks!

Definitely has possibilities but was bitter - too much of a tang with the vinegar. I added a touch of sugar.
