  • 4 pieces uncooked bacon
  • 1 pound fresh green beans
  • 1 cup chopped fresh mushrooms
  • 6 ounces cream cheese 3/4 of an 8 oz package
  • 1/3 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon soy sauce or Worcestershire sauce coconut aminos for gluten-free
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 3/4 cup coarsely crushed pork rinds about 1/2 of a 3.25 oz bag


  • Chop bacon and cook in a large cast iron or nonstick skillet over medium heat 8 minutes, stirring often, until crisp.
    Meanwhile, cut off stem end of green beans. Cut beans into 1-inch pieces or French them by cutting them in half lengthwise. Place them in a large microwave-safe bowl with 1/4 cup water; cover them with a lid or microwave-safe plate and microwave on HIGH for 2 minutes. Drain all but 2 tablespoons liquid. Reserve it for the sauce.

  • Preheat oven to 350°. Drain bacon on paper towels. Reserve 2 tablespoons drippings in the skillet.
  • Cook mushrooms in drippings over medium-high heat until browned. Add cream cheese, breaking it up into pieces with a wooden spoon. Heat over medium heat, stirring until cheese is melted. Gradually stir in chicken broth-it works best with a whisk. Stir in soy sauce, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Add green beans (with 2 tablespoons liquid) and cooked bacon; gently stir until coated.
    Spoon green bean mixture into a greased 8x8-inch or 9x9 square baking dish coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle with Cheddar cheese, then crushed pork rinds. Bake for 25 minutes or until bubbly.
