Green Beans with Bacon and Onion for a Gluten-Free Thanksgiving Dinner
This green bean recipe is 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 easily cook it quickly at the destination, without a lot of fuss.
We had just been invited to Thanksgiving dinner, so I was willing to make whatever the hostess asked me to bring. I would even have been happy to make a gluten-free version of that traditional green bean casserole that “everyone” likes. Green beans are my favorite vegetable choice in many dishes, including that one. But, when I asked the hostess who had just invited us what I could bring, her answer of “Green Beans with Bacon and Onion” was ideal! I like that even better!
- 10 Ounces Green Beans
- 1/4 Teaspoon Salt

- 1 Slice Bacon, Cooked, Crumbled (I used Hormel since it is Gluten Free)
Cook green beans in a covered saucepan in a small amount of water with salt, about 10-12 minutes.
Meanwhile, cook the bacon until crisp (about 10 minutes). Drain and crumble.
Spray a small skillet with the oil spray and saute the chopped onion until tender, about 5-8 minutes. .
Drain the green beans.
Toss the beans with the bacon and onion.
