• The Ultimate In Green Beans

    COOKING GREEN BEANSI’m not a great cook by any stretch of the imagination, but I will say that I’m pretty conceited about my green beans. Of course, there’s really nothing to making them taste delicious or I couldn’t make them,  you understand!

    Today, I’m using fresh beans because they are what I had left from the bacon wrapped beans, but I have to say that this is the one recipe that actually tastes just as good with canned bean… as long as you do it right. :) Oh, and I’ve never been able to make frozen taste just right.

    Ingredients

    Green Beans
    Bacon Fat, I probably used about 2-3 tablespoons.
    Onion, I used one large.
    Garlic Salt

    Preparation

    1. Melt fat over a low-medium heat.

    2. Chop onions into whatever size you desire and place in the melted fat.

    3. I add enough garlic salt to onions so that I do not need to salt beans later.

    4. Stir periodically.

    5. When onions are nearly done, put in beans. If you are using canned, be sure that you have drained them completely. The juice will ruin this recipe.

    6. Stir beans and onions often. You may even want to lower your heat a bit if you are cooking fresh beans.

    We really do think these are as good as green beans get!

    I don't just snap beans into Old Country Roses, BTW! My plate just happened to still be on the cabinet from making Bunny Nests.

    I snapped beans while onion cooked.

    Be sure that you stir in the beans so that the onions are distributed and no longer on the bottom of the pan or else they will burn.
