  1. Cook bacon in a large skillet set over medium-high heat until crisp. Use a slotted spoon to remove bacon pieces and drain them on a paper towel-lined plate. Pour off excess grease from the skillet, leaving about 2 tablespoons in the pan.
  2. Add the garlic and red pepper flakes to the bacon grease and cook over medium-high heat until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add green beans and season with salt and pepper. Cook and stir until beans are tender but still a little crunchy, about 10 minutes. Return bacon to the pan and toss with the beans before serving.

Followed the recipe to the note, but it didn't really work for me. Garlic tends to burn quite easily in the last 10 minutes, and really overpowers the taste of the dish. I will try again, but fr...

This was really good. I only used 5 slices of bacon, mainly because I didn't look at the recipe to see how many to use. I also couldn't find any frozen whole green beans so I used fresh but bl...

I made this for Christmas with absolutely no changes and it was great! I received compliments right and left! A hint of spice with every bite and when we had leftovers, there was always some on...

I followed the directions exactly as written. It was wonderful....HOT, but good.
