This is a nice green bean dish for company that’s low carb, too. Reheats nicely for leftovers.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 8 slices bacon - cooked, crumbled and divided
  • 1 (16 ounce) package frozen cut green beans
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 4 ounces crumbled feta cheese, divided
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ⅓ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons water

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly browned but only slightly crisp. Drain grease, leaving a small amount in the skillet for later use. Crumble bacon, reserving 2 tablespoons for garnish, and set aside.
  2. 2 Cook frozen beans in a covered, microwavable dish for about 3 minutes until thawed, but not fully cooked. Drain liquid, pat dry, and set aside.
  3. 3 Reheat skillet with residual bacon grease over medium-high heat. Stir in bacon and garlic until garlic is lightly golden. Add green beans and feta cheese, and season with onion powder and black pepper. Cook and stir until most of the feta cheese has melted, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a serving dish, and garnish with remaining feta cheese and crumbled bacon. Serve hot.

  1. 4 stars as written because why would anyone use frozen when you can easily use fresh? Mine was a 5 star dish because I used fresh green beans steamed. My family loved it. Will be making often.
  2. Followed the recipe exactly while I loved the bacon and the feta I did not like the beans. Maybe it was because these were frozen beans I'm not sure. I plan on trying this recipe with fresh beans and see if that makes a difference!
  3. This is a great side dish to bring to a BBQ or summer party. I use the Green Giant Full Length Green Beans Steamable Bags and add crumbled bacon, feta & seasonings as soon as I take it out of bag. So fast and tons of compliments!
  4. Who wouldn't be intrigued with the idea of feta cheese on green beans? I just had to try it. Hubs would have no part of it but part of the beauty of this recipe was that it was easy enough to accomodate both of us. I used fresh green beans rather than the frozen not - Read more ...
  5. Green beans feta and bacon-- all my favorite things! Made this for Thanksgiving dinner and it was a real hit. I used fresh green beans and steamed them for 10 mins before adding to frypan. Be sure to soak your frypan right away so the cheese residue doesn't stick; this makes for an easier clean-up. - Read more ...
  6. Good but not great. This needs slight modifications...I have a new microwave and my beans did not cook in 3 minutes. Wish I would have tasted one before adding to the pan. This needs more garlic and onion. Next time I try this I will steam fresh beans and use them.
  7. I scaled this for 12 on Easter, and it was a huge hit. I had tested it out the night before on a couple girlfriends and made a couple changes that I believe really helped the dish. 1) Increased the garlic (doubled it) 2) Chopped a medium onion up and threw it in the pan - Read more ...
  8. Excellent recipe. I made this dish for Thanksgiving at my parents so I cooked it right before I left and just reheated it a little once I was there. I would not change a thing to the ingredients but had to make some slight adjustments to the cooking times. I needed to cook the beans - Read more ...
  9. Made these for our family Thanksgiving potluck. Wanted a new twist on green beans and thought these sounded good but they were only so-so. (Also made the Syrian Green Beans which were awesome!) I think the flavors worked well together just too overwhelming for the beans. I will perhaps make them again but cut down - Read more ...
