Bacon and Green Beans
Fresh Green Beans (not canned)
Sliced Almonds (optional)
I use the fresh green beans from Costco. Before you start, rinse them and chop
off the ends. Let them dry on a kitchen towel so there won't be any water
added to the bacon or it will splatter.
Use as much or as little bacon as you like. I usually go a little heavy as
my family really likes bacon. Cut it into pieces and start cooking it in a pan. When it starts
getting close to done, add chopped onions. Again this is a preference thing. Lets give it
a ration of 1/3 lbs bacon to 1/2 of a medium chopped onion. Cook until onions are
getting soft and translucent. Bacon should "almost" done, but not quit. After a couple
of attempts you will find when you like adding each ingredient. Drain off as much
bacon grease as you want.
Add green beans and cook in pan (you can add a lid to help them cook).
This is also when you would add your almonds if you desire. Stir periodically
until they are done to your liking. We like ours with a bit of crunch.
