Green Beans with Bacon

Green Beans are a great way to introduce kids in the kitchen. While you don’t have to snap the green beans in half it does let kids help in preparing a meal. Children who help prepare meals are far more likely to eat them and to try new things!

On another note, the bacon will be easier to slice if you pop it in the freezer while you clean the green beans.

Green Beans with Bacon


Serves/ Yield: 4

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook:15  minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes



  • 1/2 lb. green beans, end trimmed if desired
  • 4 slices bacon, cut into small dice
  • 1 Tbsp. ghee
  • 2 scallions, discard white ends and finely chop the green parts
  • Freshly ground pepper



Fill a large pan with just enough water to cover the beans once they are added.  Bring to a boil.  Add the beans, cover and cook over medium heat until barely tender, 5 min.  Drain well in a colander and set aside.

Cook the bacon in the same pan over medium heat, stirring constantly, until crisp, 2-4 min.  Drain on paper towels and pour off the drippings.

Melt the ghee in the same pan over medium heat.  Add the onions and sauté gently just until soft, about 1 min.  Add the beans and toss together.  Stir in the bacon and toss to mix well. Season with salt & pepper. Serve hot or warm.
