Green Beans

I had these delicious green beans at a dinner party years ago. I loved them so much that I started to make them at least twice a month. The girls even love them (minus the blue cheese).
Now, I don't have the original/exact recipe. Here is my version. Just FYI , I don't measure when I cook.
Delicious Green Beans
-Steamed Green beans (fresh or whole frozen) 
-Walnuts toasted                                                  
-Crumbled Blue cheese                                       
First, I steam the beans in the microwave. Don't over do the steaming. Drain and set aside.
Next, I cut  the bacon into 1in. pieces and fry in the skillet. Cook to the desired crispness (I wouldn't make it crunchy).
While the bacon is cooking, toast walnuts in the oven for a several minutes.
When bacon is done toss in green beans and walnuts (with the bacon grease).
                                 Cook to the desired green bean tenderness.  Serve and sprinkle with blue cheese (optional). After you make it a couple of  times you'll be able to determine how much bacon,walnuts and blue cheese you desire. This is easy and yummy! Great with a steak. Also, it looks impressive on the plate.

Have a great night!
