Maple-Glazed Green Beans

These are so yummy, I couldn’t quit eating them.

  • 3 cups cut fresh green beans
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 4 bacon strips, cut into 1-in. pieces
  • 1/4 – 1/2 cup dried cranberries (I used 1/2 cup and thought there was too many.)
  • 1/4 cup real maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon bourbon, opt.  (I didn’t use.)

In a large saucepan, place steamer basket over 1 in. of water.  Place beans in basket.  Bring water to a boil.  Reduce heat to maintain a low boil; steam, covered, 4-5 minutes or until crisp-tender.

Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook onion and bacon over medium heat until bacon is crisp; drain.  Stir cranberries, syrup, salt, pepper and, if desired, bourbon into onion mixture.   Add beans; heat through, tossing to combine.

Makes:  4 servings

  1. Thank you, Dixie… Did you make any part of this ahead of time? I’m getting worse and worse at preparing dishes the day of a dinner.
