From Better Homes & Gardens New Dieter's Cookbook (p 459). This is far and away my FAVORITE way to cook green beans. The result is a tangy, flavorful dish that always gets devoured in my house! If fresh green beans aren't available, frozen whole or cut green beans will work; I've made this both ways and it's been great whether the beans were fresh or frozen.

Recipe Ingredients for Garlic-Mustard Green Beans

16 oz Beans, Snap, Green
2 serving Oscar Meyer Hardwood Smoked Bacon
1/2 cup, sliced Onions
2 clove Garlic
2 tsp Classic Dijon Mustard
1/2 tsp lemon-pepper seasoning
1/8 tsp table salt

Recipe Directions for Garlic-Mustard Green Beans

  1. If using fresh beans, trim and rinse them. Cut onion into thin slices, and mince garlic.

  2. In a large covered saucepan cook green beans in a small amount of boiling water for 10 to 15 minutes or until crisp-tender. (Cook frozen beans according to package directions.) Drain beans; rinse with cold water and set aside.

  3. Meanwhile, in a large skillet cook bacon until crisp. Remove bacon from pan, reserving 1 tablespoon drippings in skillet. (I prefer to cook my bacon on my microwave bacon tray and drain off 1 tbsp drippings to add to the skillet. It's less messy and the bacon comes out crisper.) Drain bacon on paper towels, crumble, and set aside. Cook onion and garlic in drippings in skillet over medium heat for 3 minutes or until tender. Stir in mustard, seasoning, and salt. Cook about 30 seconds more. Toss beans with onion mixture; heat through. Sprinkle with crumbled bacon.
