Green Beans and Bacon

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by St. Paul Eric

A delicious, easy bean recipe. I've never done this exactly as described with fresh beans, but I'm sure it would work well. The recipe is from Julie Trusler's cookbook, "JT's - Volume 1"

I love good old canned green beans but I wanted to use fresh ones for a party and thought this recipe sounded awesome and it was! I made the vinegar bacon mixture the night before and put in the refridge. The next day I cooked the green beans, heated the sauce mixture in the microwave and added to the fresh green beans. Delicious! I had some leftovers and ate them a couple of days after the party and they were still good. Thanks for a great recipe!
