These tasty green beans are par-cooked until tender then sautéed with crispy bacon, zesty lemon, aromatic thyme and garlic.

These make a great side to roasted chicken or pork.

        I think that would be great. Seems like prosciutto would be delicious too.

          Very good. I used 1 TBSP leftover bacon grease instead of Olive Oil. DELICIOUS! The Thyme adds a fresh taste to it. I didn’t have any lemon however this still turned out great.

              This is so delicious! I really don’t even need garlic or lemon but combined with the fresh thyme it just can’t miss!
