Wax Beans with Sliced Potatoes and Bacon

This might be my favorite side dish. The salty savory combo is perfection. And is two sides in one. I serve with steak.

I love serving our whole meal on a big serving tray. I also slice the meat so it’s just easier for everyone to dig into.

3 slices of bacon

6 new potatoes sliced thin

I’m not sure why it took so long to get me one of these. First time with a mandolin, freakin love it.

1 bag of prepped and trimmed wax beans

2 tablespoons of capers, drained

1 teaspoon of evoo

2 tablespoons of red wine vinegar, I used a purple basil vinegar


Preheat oven to 450.

Cook bacon for 6-8 minutes until brown, I check after 5. Place on a paper towel and crumble.

Toss potatoes in bacon grease and S&P. Cook for 10-12 minutes then remove and flip. Meanwhile toss beans with evoo, S&P and capers. Place beans on top and cook 10 more minutes. May need to slightly adjust time depending on how thick your potatoes are and if you like them well done like me.

Remove and toss with bacon and vinegar.

Serve with meat of your choice. I prefer steak!
