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!
