I made a few changes to this recipe to reduce the amount of fat as well as reducing the quantity of potatoes, bacon and onions. The bacon was cooked until crisp and drained. I used 1 onion which was cooked in the pan that was flavored with the bacon. The amount of potatoes was reduced by half and since I used white rose potatoes, I scrubbed them and left the peel on. The beans were rinsed and then steamed in the microwave. I added a sprinkling of salt and pepper before serving. With the changes I made I still had enough for 4 servings as a side. We enjoyed this dish with grilled salmon.

This was absolutely delicious. I boiled some tiny (unpeeled) new potatoes and the beans together until tender. I sauteed the onions and bacon together and when the bacon was cooked, but not crisp added the beans and sliced potatoes until heated through and coated with bacon grease. I just seasoned with a little salt and pepper and they were divine! I cut the recipe in half for my husband, my son, and me and wish I'd made the whole recipe. Do yourself a favor and make this recipe!! Thanks for posting Maite G.

Simple and tasty! I followed the previous reviewers and blanched the beans and sauteed the onion in the bacon drippings. Yum! Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT 4.
