Bacon Boursin Green Beans

Bacon Boursin Green Beans

I saw this recipe on The Endless Meal and how could I possibly resist green beans with bacon and Boursin cheese? I couldn’t. My son is a huge fan of Boursin cheese and I knew he would love this side dish – I was right. It took less than 15 minutes to make and seriously tasted amazing. We all, even my daughter who isn’t a fan of cheese, loved these green beans. This side dish is special enough to serve at holiday meals but easy enough to make throughout the year.  I absolutely loved these green beans.

How to Make Bacon Boursin Green Beans

Place bacon in a sauté pan over medium heat and cook until it is cooked and crispy. Place on paper towels to drain then crumble; set aside.

Drain all but 1 teaspoon of the bacon fat from the pan. Add the green beans to the pan along with 2 tbsp of water. Cover the pan with a lid and let it steam for 5 minutes, until crisp-tender. Remove the lid and sauté the beans for about 2 more minutes. Add the Boursin cheese to the pan and toss to coat. It should melt fairly quickly.

Season the beans with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper to taste then top with bacon crumbles and little bits of extra Boursin cheese. Serve immediately. Enjoy.

  2. Kim in MD says:

    Yum! I love Boursin and everything about this dish!

  3. My son has a hard time eating his veggies but I am thinking if I make these he night eat them. Bacon and Cheese? Sign me up!

  4. Oh, they look just wonderful! What’s not to love when bacon is involved? I’m glad your daughter enjoyed them, too.

  5. What a positively splendid way to fix green beans without overwhelming the bean flavor. Each flavor is distinct and sings its own note in the dish. I like it.

  6. Who could resist this?! I love anything covered in boursin.

  7. Boursin is amazing stuff but I haven’t had it in maybe a year. Never thought to throw it in with green beans but will try that. My favorite is either stuffed into a roulade, in a cheese sauce for steamed veggies, or in mashed potatoes…..or in a pinch straight off of the spoon 🙂
