These garlic-seasoned green beans are sauteed until crisp-tender, then topped with cheese and bacon for a delicious keto side dish. Use your favorite seasoning on the beans, or try a different cheese for variety. I like to shred my own cheese as I find it melts better than the bagged variety.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Cook bacon in an oven-proof skillet over medium-high heat until brown and crispy, 5 to 6 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon to a paper towel-lined plate, reserving bacon grease in the skillet. Reduce heat to medium and add enough butter to equal 2 tablespoons of fat in the skillet.

  • Add green beans to the skillet and season with salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle with garlic powder, toss to coat, and saute for 3 to 4 minutes. Add water to help steam the beans. Continue cooking until water has evaporated and beans are crisp-tender or cooked to your liking, 3 to 4 more minutes.

  • Set an oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler.

  • Top beans with shredded Cheddar cheese and sprinkle with cooked bacon.

  • Place skillet under broiler until cheese has melted, about 1 minute. Serve immediately.

I just sautéd the string beans and fresh garlic in olive oil. When almost done to my liking, I removed them to bowl, sautéd the bacon until crispy and removed to paper towel. I then put string beans back in skillet, added the crisped bacon bits and topped w fresh extra sharp cheddar. A twist of the pepper mill and I’m all set for a tasty light supper! Read More

It was a good alternative to the old green bean casserole but I wish I had just steamed the beans instead of frying. Read More

Wow. This was yummy!! I made this on the grill because ....summer is nearly over up here and I have to cram my grilling in. I grilled my turkey bacon on the grill and then cooked up the beans. I thought it was delicious! Read More

I made these beans and it was nice, but I didn't have to put in oven due to the heat from the beans was enough to melt the cheese and was very tasty to eat. Read More
