This month the Virtual Supper Club is bringing you the theme “Warm up to Winter”.  With the chill in the air, there is nothing more cozy and comforting than food that warms you up!  These Sauteed Haricots Verts with Bacon and Buttered Breadcrumbs is a side dish that delivers!

Sauteed Haricots Verts with Bacon and Buttered Breadcrumbs
Haricots Verts are one of my favorite vegetables of all time.  I think it ranks right up there with Roasted Asparagus. Haricots Verts seem to be in the stores in abundance right now. I’m sure it has something to do with the holiday season!  I love to get mine at Trader Joes.  All I have to do is rinse and cook.  I hate the work of trimming a bean!  I used a leftover dinner roll to make my breadcrumbs and oh my did that ever make the dish super flavorful!  This may use a little more dishes than you want to on the stove, but in all honesty, it is well worth it!  Think about adding this recipe to your Christmas Dinner sides.  Everyone will love them, promise!
