groovy green beans

i love these things. i've tried a dozen different ways and they are all wonderful and healthy too!

all the measurements below are for one person, cuz nobody else in my family eats these.

be brave and try substitutions. i've tried several and truly, if you cook the beans right, everything else is just grand.

4 oz frozen green beans (about 1/3 bag)
3 slices of bacon chopped OR 4 oz chicken breast chopped OPTIONAL
2 tablespoons tallow, butter or olive oil (if you don't use bacon)
1/4-1/2 tsp toasted sesame seeds (could sub sesame oil for oil and seeds)
2 tablespoons FRANK'S® hot sauce
salt and pepper to taste
Parmesan cheese
1/2-1 cup shredded cheese (i've used taco flavored, sharp cheddar and mozzarella) OPTIONAL
1/2 medium yellow onion sliced or chopped bite size
1 clove garlic chopped

if using bacon, cook with onions until bacon is almost done.
if using chicken, heat fat in pan. add onions and chicken and cook until chicken is almost done.
if no meat is used heat oil in pan (meat flavored is best for maximum yumminess)

add green beans. add garlic, sesame seeds, FRANK'S® hot sauce, salt and pepper. mix well and allow to cook until beans are desired tenderness (3-6 minutes). sprinkle Parmesan over entire dish. add cheese if desired and cover for a minute or two to allow the cheese(s) to melt.

that's it! i've considered adding mushrooms, but haven't yet. the picture is what it looks like with chicken in it. they all taste the same and yet different and did i mention--tasty?
