  • 500 g green beans
  • 4 slices bacon , optional
  • olive oil
  • 250-g pkg sliced button mushrooms , about 2 cups
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • pinch ground black pepper


  • Trim beans. Slice bacon crosswise into thick pieces. Cook bacon in a large wide saucepan set over medium-high heat. Stir often until crisp, 5 minutes. Remove bacon to a paper towel. Add mushrooms to hot bacon fat. If not using bacon, however, lightly oil pan. When hot, add mushrooms. Stir often, adding more oil, if needed, until mushrooms are lightly browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Add beans. Drizzle in water. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cover. Stir occasionally until beans are tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in bacon. Great with Turkey Roll With Prosciutto Stuffing (also in the Recipe File).
