Eric Aldrich's Thanksgiving Green Beans
In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the bacon until crisp, 5 to 7 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the bacon to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.
Remove the skillet from the heat and add the Worcestershire sauce, sugar, mustard and hot sauce, stirring it into the bacon fat. Return the skillet to high heat, add the beans and cook, tossing occasionally with tongs, until crisp-tender, about 6 minutes.
Stir in the bacon, tossing until warmed through, about 1 minute. Transfer to a serving plate and top with Creole seasoning, if desired..
