“Tired of green bean casserole? Try this fresh green bean dish that is worthy of the holidays! When I make this at Thanksgiving I double or triple it depending on the number of people coming.” - by Eric
Original recipe yields 5 servings
- Cook the bacon in a large, deep skillet over medium-high heat until crisp, about 10 minutes. Remove the bacon with a slotted spoon and drain on a paper towel-lined plate; return the skillet with the reserved bacon grease to the stove.
- Cook the onion in the bacon drippings until soft, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in the green beans and red pepper flakes; cook another 2 minutes. Pour the boiling water into the skillet and cover the skillet immediately; steam for about 15 minutes, shaking the skillet occasionally to keep the beans from sticking to the bottom. Add the butter, lemon juice, salt, and pepper; cook and stir until the butter is melted, 3 to 5 minutes. Sprinkle the cooked bacon over the beans to serve.

"Wow. These were really delicious and so easy to prepare. Next time I will probably omit the butter as it didn’t really add to the taste but it did add to the calories. ..." See more"
"Note: The 2 slices of bacon is a typo, it was originally 2 ounces of slab bacon (although I have used sliced bacon with equally god results as well). Thanks for the reviews!..." See more"
