Snappy Green Beans

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Kellie in SLO

This is a recipe handed down to me by my mom. My husband and kids get excited when they see I have bought green beans, because they know they are in for a treat. As a lower fat option I omit the bacon, and cook the onions in a dash of canola oil. I save the bacon for when I serve it to company.

My family loves this recipe. To save time I use 2 cans Green Beans. (Yes canned..I've had no complaints ;-) I also add 1/2 teaspoon salt.
