The whole family, particularly my DIL, love this basic side dish. The bacon and the onion are the key.
- 6 slices bacon, cut up
- 1 lb green beans, snapped
- 1 small onion, chopped coarsely
- 1 teaspoon salt
- to-taste ground fresh black pepper
- water, to cover
- Cook bacon until rendered. Add onion and cook until translucent.
- Add beans, salt, pepper, and water. Simmer until greens beans are tender.
I cooked the beans in the grease(no water added) as another reviewer had done,Mistake....The beans were too greasy tasting...Also I used a bacon with too much maple flavoring which really didnt do anything for the beans..I am not rating this recipe,just telling you all what not to do....
Really good side dish. I pre-cooked the bacon drained it, crumbled it and then added it to the onion, just to get rid of some of the fat. Added a little water so the beans could steam a little. Thanks for posting.
Whenever onion and bacon are being combined, I'm in. This was no exception and I'm glad I found this recipe because it was really great. I couldn't stop picking on it while waiting for the rest of the meal to finish. This would be a perfect holiday meal side dish. Thank you.
