Garlic Bacon Green Beans

3 slices of bacon, chopped
6 cloves garlic, sliced
1 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
1 1/2 lbs green beans, trimmed (fresh or good quality frozen haricot verts- I use Trader Joe’s)

In a very large skillet (the bigger the better), cook the bacon over med-high heat. Once the bacon is starting to get fairly crisp, add the garlic and cut the heat down to medium. Sauté for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally to make sure garlic does not burn or get too dark (slightly golden is fine but past that, garlic will get bitter and ruin the whole dish). Add green beans, salt and pepper. Continue to toss and sauté for another
10 minutes or until beans are tender but still crisp. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed.

Sweet Potato & Red Onion Mash


3 sweet potatoes, skinned & cubed

1 red onion, cut into chunks
1 1/2 cups water
1 heaping tsp chicken base
2 tbs olive oil
1 1/2 tsp fresh ground seasoning blend
1/2 cup half and half
1/3 cup crumbled goat cheese

Heat oven to 400 degrees. In a roasting pan lined with heavy duty foil, place vegetables, water mixed with chicken base, seasoning salt and oil. Toss to coat and bake for 20 min or until sweet potatoes are fork tender.

Lift the foil carefully and drop the sweet potato mixture into a stand mixer fitted with a wire whisk (you could use just a hand held beater or a potato masher and a big bowl). Mix on medium-high speed for a moment then add half and half and crumbled goat cheese. Whip on med-high to blend
