These green beans with bacon are the best ever! They're cooked until crisp-tender then tossed with crispy bacon and boursin cheese, which melt onto the beans to make them extra delicious. It's a quick and easy side dish everyone loves!
Sea salt, to taste
Cook the bacon in a large frying pan over medium heat until crispy, about 10 minutes. Remove the bacon from the pan and crumble it when it's cool enough to handle. Drain all but 1 tablespoon of the bacon oil out of the pan.
3 strips bacon
Increase the heat to medium-high and add the green beans and ¼ cup of water to the pan. Cover the pan and let the beans steam for 5 minutes. Remove the lid and if there is any water remaining, give it a minute to evaporate.
1 lb green beans
Add the Boursin to the pan and stir it into the green beans so it melts. Stir in the crispy bacon and season to taste with salt.
