These old fashioned southern green beans are the perfect side dish to any dinner.
1 lb. fresh green beans
2 slices hickory smoked bacon, cut into medium pieces
1 onion, diced small (nearly minced but not that small)
1/4 tsp salt, or to taste
1/8 tsp pepper, or to taste
In a wide skillet, bring 1 inch of water to a boil
Add bacon and onions, boil for 4-5 minutes
Add green beans, salt, and pepper.
Stir to combine, reduce heat to medium
Cover and let simmer for 10 minutes being careful not to let the water run out
The 1 inch of water should be enough, if the water runs out, add 1/4 cup at a time until a creaminess develops.
