Green beans with Bacon and Onions

  I still remember Green Beans with Bacon and Onions from when I was a small child! Our beans would be all picked from our garden and the bacon would be form the hogs we raised through the summer. These kind of meals served with our Homemade Cornbread and onions and a fresh mess of fried corn was a delicious treat for us! We loved this and still do! It’s called country cookin’.

This is a very simple but tasty dish for a great side with your dinner.
