Skillet Green Beans, Pecans & Naked Bacon
Need a cozy, healthy side dish for dinner tonight? Here it is! These green beans are steamed lightly, then sautéed in rendered Naked Bacon fat and topped with crumbled bacon and pecans. The flavor is out of this world! It’s also gluten free, sugar free, Paleo and Whole30 compliant!
The best thing about this recipe, besides the flavor, is the super short ingredients list! You only need THREE things. Yup, you read that right. THREE. Of course, you’ve got to start with Whole30 Approved, Sugar Free Naked Bacon. Then just add green beans and pecans and you’re in business!
4 cups Green Beans
5-6 slices Naked Bacon Original
1/2 cup Chopped Pecans
First, add your green beans to a medium skillet with about 1/2 cup of water. Cover and set to medium heat. Allow it to steam for about 3-4 minutes.
Once the beans are a bright green, drain the water and set the green beans aside.
In the same skillet, cook your Naked Bacon until it’s crispy. We recommend the Original flavor, but any of our Whole30 Approved bacon flavors will be wonderful!
Transfer the bacon to a cutting board and chop it into bite sized pieces.
Without cleaning the skillet, add the green beans back in. Sautee over medium heat, stirring occasionally.
When the green beans are tender, sprinkle with the bacon and pecans and serve!
