      We had a "southern cooking" fund raiser lunch at work, so I made a pot of these. I heated them up, then dumped them in the crockpot to cook down while I was at work. I chopped half the onion into the beans, even though this says to leave it whole and then remove it. I've learned that this is not how I personally enjoy green beans, but they were popular; almost the whole pot was gone!
