Savory Green Beans

A really fast and yummy side dish.



  1. Fry turkey bacon crisp over medium heat in a non-stick pan.
  2. Remove to drain on paper towels. Very lightly wipe some of grease from the pan with a paper towel.
  3. Lower heat to medium-low, and sauté garlic a minute or two in turkey bacon residue. Do not brown or let burn.
  4. Add green beans to garlic. Sauté lightly.
  5. Cut fried bacon into small bites with kitchen shears and return to pan.
  6. Cook all ingredients together for 2 minutes.
  7. Add a splash or two of white wine vinegar (cider vinegar also works) and cook an additional 2 minutes, or until the liquid has removed all the yummy brown bits from the pan.

This was so good. I used red wine vinegar instead because that was all I had but it was amazing. I would have never thought to add either the wine or vinegar.
