Green Beans with Bacon and Onion for a Gluten-Free Thanksgiving Dinner
It’s so easy is to make, and it’s naturally gluten-free. It’s also a dish that looks good, tastes good, and travels well. Actually, it doesn’t even need to “travel,” since you can also cook it quickly at the destination, without a lot of fuss.
That leaves me more time to focus on some other gluten-free recipes I’ve been thinking about this week….
Roast Turkey…or…Turkey gravy…or…Cornbread, Sausage and Pecan Dressing…or…Glazed Yams with Marshmallows…or…Cranberry sauce with pears…or…Pecan pie bites (using Shirley’s at Gluten Free Easily – her crustless version is beautiful )…or Pumpkin Pie with Agave.
Green Beans with Bacon and Onion are gluten-free (no wheat, barley or rye), casein-free, dairy-free, lactose-free, nut-free and sugar-free, as well as low-carb and low GI (low glycemic index).
Gluten-Free Green Beans with Bacon and Onion — Gluten-Free
10 Ounces Green Beans
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
1/4 Cup Chopped Onion
Olive Oil Spray
1 Slice Bacon, Cooked, Crumbled (I used Hormel since it is GF)
Cook green beans in a small amount of water with salt.
Meanwhile, cook the bacon until crisp. Drain and crumble.
Spray a small pan with the oil spray and saute the chopped onion until tender. You could use bacon drippings instead, but don’t use too much or the beans will be greasy.
Drain the green beans.
Toss with the bacon and onion.
