These are amazing green beans - especially when feeding a husband who doesn't general like "green things"!!
This has been a family favorite since the recipe was published in 2000. When we travel for Turkey Day my kids, nieces and nephews all ask if I am bringing the green beans with bacon!
French cut the fresh beans but other than that followed the recipe exactly. I've never been extremely fond of green beans and, to be honest, only make them as hubby loves them. Let's just say we fought over the leftovers. These are outstanding! The briny bite from the onions is crave worthy. The bacon really balances the vinegar. Yum!
I thought that this was a versatile, tasty recipe. I was a little short on green beans so I threw in some mushrooms and white zucchini. I used reduced-fat bacon as well as substituted balsalmic vinegar for the cider vinegar. I was quite pleased with the results.
This was a really good side dish. The bacon and the vinegar in the cocktail onion went well together. I love vinegar, so this was extra tasty in my opinion. I wil be making this again.
made this for thanksgiving. was surprised by the vinegar taste from the onions but guests really liked it. used frozen green beans - would have been better with fresh, but i appreciated the convenience. good twist on green beans.
