“My sister-in-law gave me this great, simple recipe. Green beans are sauteed in bacon fat, then tossed with toasted nuts and crumbled blue cheese. Very rich and quite fattening, but great for holidays!”

Directions

  1. Place green beans in a saucepan with one inch of water in the bottom. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, and cook for 5 minutes, or until tender-crisp. Remove from heat, drain, and set aside.
  2. Heat the bacon drippings in a large skillet over medium heat. Add green beans, and toss to coat. Saute until the beans are heated through. Sprinkle with nuts and crumbled blue cheese. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

I almost skipped this recipe because of the 80% fat and high calories, but I'm so glad I didn't. It was terrific even with adjustments which reduced the fat to 54% (still high) and the calories by 2/3. Used 1 lb green beans for 4 servings, not 6. Steamed the beans in the microwave for 5 minutes, meanwhile cooked 2 slices of bacon. Poured off all but 1 tsp drippings and added 1 tsp canola oil. Deglazed the pan with 1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar. Stir fried the beans and 2 Tbsp walnuts for about 1 minute. Crumbled the bacon and 2 Tbsp blue cheese on top. Fabulous, rich flavor combination, definitely company quality, and ready in about 10 minutes.

I used olive oil and feta cheese instead of bacon fat and blue cheese. Didn't measure, just browned some walnuts in the oil, threw in the steamed beans and heated through, added feta and served. This was un- believable! It was so delicious. My husband and two six-footer boys loved it. Not a scrap left.

This is absolutely WONDERFUL! The second time we made it, we substituted Feta for Bleu cheese (or some of each), sauteed the beans in olive oil/garlic rather than bacon grease, and used pecans instead of walnuts. Healthier, and just as good.
