About the Recipe

Green beans like you’ve never had them before! Sautéed garlicky bacon fat then braised and simmered with a creamy garlic sauce. Decadent? Yes. Special? Double yes.


- 2 pounds Fresh green beans, ends cut off and cut into bite size pieces 

- 6 to 8 slices Bacon, chopped up 

- 2 Cups Heavy cream 

- 1 Cup Chicken broth 

- 1 whole clove finely chopped Garlic, fresh or 1 Tablespoon Minced Garlic, Pre-made 

- 8 oz Parmesan cheese, finely chopped (not grated) 

- 8 oz container Mushrooms, fresh, finely chopped *optional* or 8 oz Canned Mushrooms


1) Cut up the green beans, ends cut off and cut into bite-size pieces

2) Cut up the slices of bacon into bite-size pieces and cook in a pan to your desired crispness

3) Remove the cooked bacon, and leave the grease in the pan.

4) Add garlic and brown (usually 30 seconds to a minute on high)

5) Add green beans and mix them together. Cook for about 5 minutes at a high temperature.
