Recipe by Marlene.
My mom made them like this ... When I make them now as an adult, I could just eat THESE for dinner :) These are not fancy by any means. 3 ingredients . Mm! The only thing is, all ingredients are "to taste" I guess I have to give some kind of measurement as guidelines though, so I'll give it my best shot! ;-)

Great taste and super easy recipe! Served it for Christmas dinner (green!) with maple carrots, baked herb/vegetable stuffing, mashed potatoes/gravy and turkey from the rotisserie. I only used about half the amount of bacon and it was still yummy--I did allow the flavors to meld for about 10 minutes before serving. Thanks Marlene for a colorful, easy and tasty sidedish.
Directions See How It's Made
- Take scissors (I have a pair I use for food only) and cut up your bacon into a skillet.
- Start frying over medium heat until you get some of the bacon grease"oozing" out.
- Add diced onion.
- Continue to cook until bacon is done.
- Cook your green beans according to package directions.
- When done, drain them and pour into a bowl.
- Dump the fried bacon and onion (and grease) over the green beans.
- Toss to coat.
- *I know, this sounds greasy, but when spread out over a good sized serving of green beans, it's really not that bad.
- Also, I have used turkey bacon before and it works ok-- then you don't have the grease though, to fry up the onions--.
