I’ve fallen head over heels for these Southern Green Beans with Bacon and Almonds! My mind is already focusing on Thanksgiving and Christmas food, and these green beans are definitely making an appearance at both occasions.
I seriously can’t believe we’re already into November. Where did the year go?!
These last few months of the year are always my favorite though. I love the season of giving, so I’m super thrilled to be partnering once again with Challenge Dairy for another generous “Pin a Recipe, Feed a Child” campaign.
Challenge Dairy and UNICEF are once again joining forces to fight and raise awareness of the childhood malnutrition crisis, which results in the unnecessary loss of nearly three million young lives a year.
Starting TODAY through December 31, 2016, every recipe pinned from Challenge Butter’s “2016 Pin a Recipe, Feed a Child” Pinterest Board will result in a meal being donated to UNICEF for a child in need.
It’s really that simple! You can help a child in need by simply saving a recipe from THIS PINTEREST BOARD. Save as many as you can! Challenge has pledged to provide UNICEF up to 75,000 meals! Let’s make it happen this year!
Isn’t it such a great feeling to be able to give?
Speaking of which, this recipe is my gift to you! I seriously can’t tell you how much I love these beans.
Fresh green beans are me and my family’s absolute favorite.
Green Bean Casserole is fantastic, but there needs to be room on your table for these Southern Green Beans with Bacon too. Trust me!
The green beans are cooked until tender in a combination of bacon grease, chicken broth and seasonings. Then they’re quickly drained and set aside, to prepare the browned butter – toasted almonds.
This really is the key to making this dish go from good to AMAZING!
The browned butter brings the dish to a completely new level.
Once the butter is browned and the almonds are toasted, drop the green beans and bacon back in and get them nice and toasted too.
You’ll never want to eat green beans any other way again.
