  • 3-4 slices of bacon
  • 1 lb of blanched green beans preferably thin french, blanched for 5-6 minutes in boiling salted water

  • coarse sea salt
  • freshly ground black pepper


  1. In a heavy skillet or pot over medium heat, render the bacon slices slowly. Once the bacon is cooked through and crispy, remove from the skillet, chop and reserve.
