      Green beans are a low-calorie, high-fiber vegetable that provides vitamins C, K, and folate. They are also a good source of antioxidants and can contribute to heart health.

      Where can I buy the required ingredients?

      You can find fresh French green beans and bacon in most supermarkets or local markets.

      I always chose vibrant green and firm beans to the touch, and I love to choose bacon without too much fat.

      Can I substitute any of the ingredients?

      Yes! You can substitute regular bacon for turkey bacon. Green onion can be substituted with parsley or rosemary.

      Sure! My French Green Beans with Bacon can be a versatile addition to various menus. It pairs wonderfully with grilled chicken, Octopus in Port Wine. It is also a perfect side dish for Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner.

      Which drinks pair well with this dish?

      It is better to serve a crisp white wine such as Sauvignon Blanc or a light-bodied Chardonnay.

      If you prefer non-alcoholic options, sparkling water with a twist of lemon.

      How long can I store the leftovers?

      You can store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.

      It is better to reheat the stovetop on low heat.

      Recipe tips & tricks:

      1. Trim the stems gently.
      2. Don’t overcook the green beans; they should retain their bright green color and slight crunch.
      3. Chop green onions just before serving.
