Bits of bacon and onion dress up the green beans in this easy-to-prepare side dish. These beans lend a crisp fresh flavor to any meal. They're best when served hot. -Mari Anne Warren Milton, Wisconsin

"This is so good! I have a hard time getting my family to eat fresh cooked green beans, or even onions, but adding a little bit of bacon, and just a tiny bit of the grease, they eat it all up including my picky eaters! We are from the south and have an old cookbook that my mom just gave me and it has a similar receipe. I make this everytime we cook green beans now. LOVE IT!!!!"
