Bacon and Feta Green Beans Side Dish

 

 

Feta and Bacon Green Beans

With holiday’s around the corner, like Thanksgiving, Christmas, Rosh Hashanah and even just the busy weeknight dinners during the school year,  I am always looking for new side dishes to serve.
 
These Feta and Bacon Green Beans are beyond delicious and have become a total staple in my house. My kids are not the biggest vegetable lovers, but green beans are one of those veggies, with a little doctoring up, they love.
 
This green bean side dish is great to pair with your dinner or to serve at a big gathering  It is easy to make and definitely will jazz up those every day green beans and add some pizzaz to your meal!
 
They are SUPER easy to make (’cause you know me, I only do easy!) and the bacon, feta and vinaigrette will be sure to delight your guests!

How to make Feta and Bacon Green Beans:

Ingredients needed:

  • 1 pound french green beans
  • 5-6 slices of bacon, diced
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese
  • salt/pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup of your favorite vinaigrette dressing

Instructions:

  • Steam the beans until a fork can easy pierce through (about 10 minutes or so). Don’t over cook them, or they change color and look sad. (we don’t want sad looking green beans)
  • While the beans are steaming, cook the bacon, blot the fat off with a paper towel and allow to cool. Once cool, dice the bacon into small pieces.
  • Once the beans are cooked, transfer to a bowl, season with salt and pepper – taste it to your liking. Add the vinaigrett salad dressing and toss to coat.
  • Top with the bacon and feta cheese.
  • Enjoy

How to Steam Green Beans in a saucepan

  • Trim and wash your green beans
  • Add 1/2 inch of salted water to a saucepan or frying pan
  • Add green beans to the pan and cover
  • Cook until they are tender and the water has evaporated (between 3-5 minutes)
