Bacon and Blue Cheese Roasted Green Beans

So this is a easy side I made for my mom for a holiday party. The idea was to stand out.  Ya know, it one of those things where what you want to take is already taken by someone else that’s going to be a obvious hit especially if its generally your “signature” dish. From grocery shopping to even picking a holiday outfit these type of things can be a lot of work. You don’t want to spend time and energy on a dish just to bring it throw it on the potluck table and that’s it.   You should be proud of it. Personally it warms me to know others enjoy my food. Also whatever your dish is can bring new experiences to peoples lives and they may like something they never thought they would. That’s where this dish comes in its STANDS OUT.  Its a heavy hitter in the flavor department its sure to stand out and get people talking in a good way. Give it a try. You should always have something for everyone.
