    An Dracon's Note:

    We have a family day every other month where everyone brings a dish. When I realized that no one was bringing a vegetable I dug through my pantry and refrigerator and came up with this recipe. It went over really well with everyone... and I come from a very vocal Italian family that feels free to tell you what they liked and didn't like about a dish. The bacon in this dish will not be browned or crunchy but it really gives great flavor to the green beans. Just make sure you dice it and don't use large pieces. I also eliminated a large part of the canning liquid so the 'pot liquor' would have a full-bodied flavor and the beans would not be floating in too much liquid.

      For canned green beans, they were very good. I really don't think that much (if any) water was necessary; it just seemed to slow the cooking of the bacon. Next time I would just cook the bacon and saute the onion in the bacon fat. Maybe add some flour to the fat also to make the juice thick and cling to the beans. I also didn't simmer them for 30 minutes as written. Maybe I would if I used fresh beans but not for canned. Thanx for sharing. I will tweek this to my liking and make again.
