French Green Bean Un-Casserole 

Serves 8

2 lbs fresh baby French green beans (haricot verts), trimmed

2 slices thick bacon, preferably applewood smoked

1 tbsp unsalted butter

2 medium shallots, thinly sliced

1 cup heavy cream

Kosher salt and ground black pepper, to taste

Fill a large pot with water, salt it until it tastes like the ocean, then bring it to a boil over medium high heat.  Drop the green beans into the boiling water and cook for 3 minutes.  Quickly drain and then plunge them into an ice water bath to stop the cooking process. 

Cook bacon until crisp in a large sauté pan.  Remove the bacon and set aside.  Add butter and shallots and sauté for 5 minutes until softened.  Add cream and bring to a boil, cook until it has reduced and thickened slightly.  Add green beans to the sauté pan to finish cooking about 5 – 10 minutes.  Green beans should be very hot but still slightly crisp. 

Salt and pepper to taste before serving.  Garnish with bacon.
