Green Beans with Bacon and Onions

I don't usually make fancy side dishes, since my family doesn't care to eat of them.  They'd be happy with a nuked can of corn or carrots...YUCK!  This is one that they will tolerate, since Mama LOVES it!  If you are a bacon lover, like me, you should definitely give this a try!

1/2 lb. bacon
1 medium onion, sliced and rough chopped
2 lbs. frozen green beans or 4 cans green beans
1/2-1 tsp. seasoned salt
1/2 tsp. garlic powder

Fry up bacon over medium heat.  Remove bacon from the pan and crumble it.  Throw green beans in the grease and cook on medium heat, covered.  Stir every 5 minutes or so.  After 10 minutes, add the onions.  Water may need to be added to keep the beans from sticking.  Continue to cook until beans are tender.  I like to brown the beans a little, but if you do this, be careful to not burn them.  Shake garlic powder and seasoned salt over beans, to taste.  I tend to add more, but less is probably ok.  Just keep tasting them. :)  Add crumbled bacon back to the pan and keep warm until ready to serve.  YUM!
