Glazed Green Beans

In an effort to clean out magazines and cookbooklets, I’ve decided to join Magazine Mondays hosted by Cream Puffs in Venice. What I really like is that she isn’t strict about when you post so I can publish these yummy results as I find them.

2 pounds green beans, cleaned and trimmed
4 slices bacon, chopped into small pieces
1 bunch green onions, sliced thin
1/2 teaspoon thyme
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
3 tablespoons packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

  • In a large pot bring salted water to a boil and add the beans. Cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Drain well.
  • While the beans are cooking, brown the bacon in a large skillet, about 5 minutes. When the bacon is brown and almost crisp add the green onions and thyme and cook until the onions are tender, about 3 more minutes.
  • Stir in sugar and cook until golden.
  • Add the beans and toss well.
  • Add the vinegar, salt and pepper.
  • Scrape all the bits from the bottom of the pan.
  • Cook a few more minutes until the beans are glazed.
