Green Beans

1 1/2 pounds fresh green beans, cut into 1 inch pieces
6 bacon strips, diced
1 large onion, chopped
salt and pepper to taste

Place beans in a saucepan and cover with water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and cook for 15-20 minutes or until tender.
Meanwhile, in a skillet, cook bacon until crisp. Remove bacon and set aside. Saute onion in drippings until tender; remove with a slotted spoon. Drain beans; return to pan. Add onion, 1 tablespoon drippings, salt and pepper; heat through. Crumble the bacon. Add to the beans and toss. Serve immediately.
The Results:
These were so yummy! My mom makes these beans. She usually adds almonds or some other nut to them. I don't care for the almonds in them so I left them out. These were good the next day too. Good side dish.
