Pammy's "awful" Green Beans W/ Egg, Bacon, Onion

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 5 mins

This is my version but my ex-mother-in-law used to make Green Beans and Eggs. I thought it looked awful and was afraid to taste it...finally did and was surprised. My hubby (High School Sweetheart, current hubby, 2nd and last hubby! lol!) is very, very, very fussy and HE actually likes this for a veggie. He gave it 4 stars! (Surprise! He doesn't like veggies!) I like onions, hubby doesn't so I only use this small amount. If you like onion, maybe use more and bigger. It's nice for something different. I am only cooking for 2 now...thus the small amount.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Spray a fry pan with cooking spray.
  2. Using kitchen scissors, cut bacon into 1/8 inch slices and place in pan.
  3. Add onion to pan.
  4. Cook over medium heat until bacon is done, not crisp.
  5. Drain Green Beans.
  6. Add Green Beans and beaten egg.
  7. Cook until egg is done, kinda scrambled looking.
  8. Salt and Pepper to taste.

These were far from "awful" they were delicious. My picky DH said they were very good and to make them again. These are a very quick and easy side dish to make. Thanks Pammy for a great recipe.
