Some of the best green beans you’ll ever taste in your life are the ones that are pan-fried with bacon.
It’s a classic green bean recipe that most everyone knows. Bacon, onion, and green beans all come together for the perfect side dish.
But what if you could make a version of that…but better?
That’s where this recipe comes in.
Add new potatoes (red potatoes) and a whole heckuva lot of ranch seasoning and you’ve got something magnificent. It’s simple in its own right, but absolute perfection.
I made this green bean recipe last week and almost ate it by itself for lunch, it’s that good.
This recipe is simple to make and worth a shot. If you’re looking for something to amp up your normal green bean recipe, or you want something special for a side dish, than this is the recipe for you.
