Awesome green beans and new potatoes. Loved the garlic flavor and the addition of the bacon and lemon juice was perfect. Definitely a keeper and going right into my Best of 2017 file. Delish!.
- 1 pound potatoes (small red potatoes)
- Coarse salt and pepper
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 6 garlic cloves, minced
- 4 ounces sliced bacon (4 slices, cut crosswise into 1/2-inch pieces)
- 1/2 pound green beans (trimmed and cut into 1 1/2-inch lengths)
- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
What You Will Need
No special items needed.
In a large saucepan, cover potatoes with 2 inches salted water. Bring to a simmer and cook until potatoes are just tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Drain thoroughly.
In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high; add potatoes and season with salt and pepper. Cook, mashing potatoes slightly, until golden brown in spots, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and continue cooking for another 5 or so minutes.
Transfer to a serving dish and keep warm.
Add bacon to skillet. Cook until bacon is browned, about 3 minutes. (If the bacon exudes alot of grease, leave only enough grease to cook the green beans).
Add green beans and cook, stirring occasionally, until bright green and crisp-tender, about 4 minutes.
Add to potatoes along with lemon juice to taste. Season with salt and pepper and toss gently to combine.
