Green Beans with Smoked Lardons

When we think of holiday celebrations—especially Thanksgiving—this recipe is always on the “can’t wait to eat” list! The great thing about green beans—and our Smoked Lardons—are that they are available year-round, so you won’t need to wait for a special occasion to whip these up.

To achieve perfectly cooked green beans that are crisp, colorful and flavorful, use fresh green beans. This means, you’ll want to pick out beans that are firm, brightly green and without blemishes. To ensure that they don’t absorb too much water when cooking, use kitchen shears to trim just the tips. We boil the green beans in seasoned water—making sure to drain and shock the beans in an ice bath to lock in the flavor and stop the cooking process.

You’ll find this recipe is easy and is guaranteed to make the other veggie dishes green with envy because it’s cozied up with our lardons, aka. chewy-on-the-inside, crispy-on-the-outside, flavor bombs! It’s a winner for any dinner and makes a great sidekick for the main attraction.
