Infused with deep bacon and onion flavor, these tender beans are just like your grandmother used to make. Serve with pepper sauce for an extra kick, if desired.
3 center-cut bacon slices
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup fat-free, lower-sodium chicken broth
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 pounds green beans, trimmed
Hot pepper sauce (optional)
How to Make It
Cook bacon in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat 6 minutes or until crisp. Remove bacon from pan, reserving 1 teaspoon drippings in pan; crumble bacon. Add onion to drippings in pan; sauté 5 minutes or until tender.
Combine onion, broth, salt, and green beans in a 4-quart electric slow cooker. Cover and cook on LOW for 8 hours or until beans are very tender. Transfer beans from slow cooker to a serving bowl, using a slotted spoon. Sprinkle with crumbled bacon. Serve with hot pepper sauce, if desired.
