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.
