    Cookgirl's Note:

    The quasi-classic Spanish side dish known as judias verdes con jamon. I substituted bacon for the Serrano ham. From 500 All-Time Great Recipes.

    1. 1
      In a large pot of salted water cook the green beans about 5-6 minutes, only until just tender but still with some "bite".
    2. 2
      In a saucepan, heat the olive oil on medium heat and fry the onion for 5 minutes, until softened. Add the garlic and cook another minute. DO NOT burn the garlic!
    3. 3
      Drain the green beans well and add to the saucepan with the garlic. Cook, stirring constantly for 2-3 minutes. Stir in the crumbled bacon. NOTE: If using Serrano or Parma ham, add it at the same time with the garlic.
    4. 4
      Season with salt and pepper. Serve warm.

      I love green beans with bacon, if it calls for bacon I make it. Thanks for a great quick and easy recipe.

      Oh yum, what a great recipe for green beans. But, of course, bacon enhances everything. I added a splash of balsamic vinegar to the bacon, and again to the onions. Used shortcut bacon (known in American as Canadian bacon), so it was mostly bacon and very little fat. Served with grilled steak, baked potatoes and roasted veggies. Yummo!
