Martina McBride's Green Beans with Goat Cheese and Warm Bacon Dressing
So little time, so many green beans recipes. Yet, it's safe to say this crowd-pleasing dish is a real winner. Hunks of soft, creamy goat cheese punctuate this savory green beans medley with bacon, that gets a hint of sweetness from cranberries. As Martina McBride puts it in her new cookbook Martina's Kitchen Mix: My Recipe Playlist for Real Life, "What you have here, folks, is a real workhorse of a side dish. I've added this to a brunch menu, made it as a side dish for Thanksgiving, taken it to a potluck, and made it in each of the four seasons." Worth noting: If you're cooking for someone who's lactose intolerant or trying to eat less dairy, McBride says this dish is just as wonderful sans cheese.Want more Martina McBride recipes?
