Equipment needed for these cheddar bacon green beans:

  • Non-stick skillet You will need a medium to large non-stick skillet for sauteing these bacon, cheddar green beans in.
  • Spatula I like to use a plastic spatula to turn the green beans. Using plastic on non-stick also prevents the non-stick skillet from scratching.
  • Serving dish A pretty serving dish to place these cheddar green beans in makes them taste even better (just kidding, but it adds a fun element)!

Notes* Green beans tend to burn easily if they are not stirred frequently while being sauteed.

You can do several variations with these, such as adding BBQ sauce in with the green beans and seasonings while they are being sauteed, or your favorite seasonings instead of garlic powder and Season all.

Try serving these with Amish Style Mashed Potatoes and Super Easy Crock Pot Chicken or Chicken Bacon Swiss Rollups (shown above and below).
