The original recipe called for so few ingredients that I'm sure it's delectable in it's less-is-more state of perfectness leaving the so few ingredients to shine through as stars. Dorie's recipe called for pancetta, trimmed and blanched green beans, butter, ground pepper and walnut oil. Simple and perfect.
However using bacon as my stand in for the pancetta and adding just a few more simple ingredients the side dish I'd created was outstanding in it's own right too. After all, everything is better with bacon :)
Using trimmed and blanched green beans, 1/2 pound of bacon (sauteed crisp), a dash of red pepper flakes, salt, pepper, a bit of golden honey and some toasted walnuts this is my dish in a pinch.
Thanks again for the inspiration Dorie! I wouldn't have done it without you...perhaps :) !
