We are a green bean loving family, and this is our new favorite way to make them.
I made these green beans as a possible option for the upcoming holidays, and my family gobbled them up. I can’t remember the last time we didn’t have leftovers of our veggie dish!
There’s a lot to love here – bacon, cheese, garlic, and the onions pretty much caramelize as you cook them. Fancy enough for company, but easy enough for a weeknight, these green beans are a real winner.

2 cloves garlic, minced
6 bacon strips, diced
1/2 tsp. onion salt

Pepper, to taste

Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large skillet. Add onion, garlic, and bacon to the pan and cook for 5 minutes.
Add in onion salt, garlic salt, pepper, and green beans. Cook until green beans are softened and everything is cooked. Stir in the Parmesan and serve.
