Green Beans and Bacon

I love fresh green beans out of the garden all steamed and sprinkled with a little butter, salt and pepper!  But what I really love is green beans cooked with bacon!   It's super simple!


Green Beans and Bacon

Fry up one pound of bacon.  I usually bake my bacon, but for this recipe you are going to want to fry it!  Once the bacon is cooked to your liking (we like crispy but not so well done it turns into powder) place the bacon on a plate and drain most of the bacon grease from the frying pan.  Place 2 quarts of green beans (raw--we like fresh from the garden or frozen from the garden) in the skillet, crumble bacon over the top of the green beans, cover and cook on medium until the green beans are cooked (until they're bright green).  Once they are done you can serve them with your favorite main dish.  My favorite combo would be Easy Peasy Chops, Smashed Potatoes, Green Beans and Bacon, and Honey Yeast Rolls.  Mmm...yummy!
