About Green Beans with Bacon

This is one of my go to recipes on the days friends and family stop by. Everyone seems to really enjoy them, and I can not blame them I mean who dose not like bacon. if you already have your fresh green beans trimmed and cut, then this recipe only takes 15 minutes to make, and goes really well with anything you want to make it with. I like to sever it with fried chicken and mash potatoes, but green beans with bacon also has a place at my holiday table.

      I made this recipe. Only thing I'd change is cooking the bacon at least half way through before adding the onion & garlic. My first time I put b, o&g in at the same time. The onion & garlic were very dark by the time the bacon was crispy. My pan may have been too hot. But there's more green beans coming from the garden soon & I will be making this again!
