FFwD: Dorie Greenspan’s pancetta green beans

This dish is quick and delicious. Green beans are a family favorite and often part of our weeknight dinners. Typically I quickly steam beans and serve them plain so it was fun to give our old standby a bit of a twist. Dorie Greenspan’s recipe found on page 333 of her latest book, Around My French Table was a great discovery. The recipe made more than the two of us could eat. The next morning I quickly reheated the beans and pancetta until they got just a little brown and crisp. I cleared a spot in the same non-stick pan, added a small bit of butter and prepared and egg, over medium. I found the combination very satisfying and tasty. 

Thank you French Fridays with Dorie for keeping me cooking and trying dishes from this wonderful cookbook.


  1. What a wonderful idea, Angela!!! Mmmmmm...

  2. I enjoy a poached egg on asparagus with pancetta, so I'm sure this is equally satisfying!

  3. What a great idea to eat the leftovers with eggs for breakfast!
