Green Beans with Bacon and Hazelnuts

I was recently given a HUGE batch of fresh green beans that I have now cut and frozen. It took me 2 days to get them all cut. I wasn't sure what to do with them other than steam them. I found this recipe online and it turned out really good.

Green Beans with Bacon and Hazelnuts
Serves 4

1 tsp. canola oil
1 large shallot
1 lb. green beans, trimmed
1/2 c. water
2 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
2 Tbsp. chopped toasted hazelnuts (I used walnuts)
1/4 tsp. salt

Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add shallot and cook, stirring until starting to brown, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Add green beans and cook, stirring often, until seared in spots, 2 to 3 minutes for tender-crisp or 6 minutes for tender. Remove from heat and stir in bacon, hazelnuts, and salt.

  1. If *you* are endorsing these green beans, they must be something super special! I'm going to give this a go with tomorrow's dinner.
