Okay, so this may not be the healthiest recipe on the planet, the beans are lightly sauteed in bacon grease, but hey, I’m sure it’s healthier than some of the processed crap that comes in a 2 pound containers from the grocery store. Plus, a 3 year old can pronounce all the ingredients, so there’s bonus points for that.
Oh, did I mention these beans are awesome? Well they are. You should try them.
1 lb green beans, trimmed
4 strips of bacon, cooked and chopped
1 onion, sliced thin
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
salt and pepper to taste
In a large stock pot blanch beans, cool, and set aside. Cook bacon in a heavy skillet. When bacon is finished cooking, place on paper towels to drain. Saute onions in bacon grease. Once the onions are cooked, toss in the beans, red pepper flakes and stir until coated. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Everything is better with bacon.
Wouldn’t you agree?
