This is easy and delicious. I used lower sodium bacon so I could control and reduce the sodium levels. I also added a few strips of red pepper I had in the refrigerator that needed to be used. I cooked them with the bacon and onion. I will definitely make it again.

We enjoyed this recipe. I blanched the green beans ahead of time and I sautéed the onion in bacon drippings I had in the fridge. Just before serving, I added a splash of white vinegar as suggested by another reviewer. Delicious and I would definitely make this again!

Super quick and so tasty. The bacon really bumps up the taste. And I let a little bit of the bacon grease in the pan . It really coated each green bean adding even more taste to the beans . I added a few mushrooms to the mix. I highly recommend this recipe.

Very tasty, and so easy! I don't add the onion until the bacon is nearly done, so the bacon is crisp but the onions are just wilted.
