The whole family, particularly my DIL, love this basic side dish. The bacon and the onion are the key.


  1. Cook bacon until rendered. Add onion and cook until translucent.
  2. 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.
