  • 5 slices turkey bacon

  • ¼ cup Swanson® Unsalted Chicken Stock

  • ¼ cup heavy whipping cream

  • 1 ½ teaspoons fresh lemon juice

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 teaspoon dried dill weed

  • 6 egg yolks

  • ¼ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper

  • 2 cups Swanson® Chicken Broth

  • 2 pounds fresh whole green beans, trimmed

  • ½ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper


  1. Place turkey bacon in a skillet over medium to medium-high heat. Cook to desired crispness, turning occasionally, about 6 minutes. Remove from heat; let cool slightly. Chop bacon into small pieces.

  2. Mix Swanson® Chicken Stock, cream, lemon juice, minced garlic, and dill in a microwaveable bowl. Microwave on HIGH for 1 minute, 30 seconds.

  3. Place water in the bottom of a double boiler; water should not touch the bottom of the top pan. Bring water to a boil. Lightly beat egg yolks in the top of the double boiler. Cook, stirring until thickened and egg yolks are about double in volume, 3 to 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low.

  4. Gradually whisk in stock/cream mixture, whisking until completely combined. Mix thoroughly for another minute. Season with 1/4 teaspoon black pepper. Remove from heat and cover to keep sauce warm.

  5. Set a steamer basket insert into a large saucepan. Pour in Swanson® Chicken Broth to just below the bottom of the steamer; bring to a boil. Add green beans, season with 1/2 teaspoon black pepper and steam until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Discard leftover chicken broth or reserve for another use.

  6. Transfer beans to a serving dish; sprinkle with bacon crumbles. Top with hollandaise sauce and serve.
