Green Beans, Bacon, and Tomatoes
This is a great side dish for holiday meals or really any meal. Adjust ingredient portions based on the size of your family. The recipe below serves as a side for 4 people.
4 slices bacon
1/2 large onion, chopped
A little over a pound of fresh green beans, trimmed
One large can whole tomatoes with juice
Salt and pepper
A pinch of cayenne pepper
Add the bacon to a large Dutch oven and cook over medium heat. When cooked to your liking (we like it crispy) remove and let rest on paper towels, to soak up some of the grease. Drain off some of the excess fat from the Dutch oven, then add the onions. Cook for a few minutes, then add the green beans and tomatoes. Sprinkle in salt, black pepper and cayenne pepper to taste. Stir gently to combine, then cover the pot and reduce the heat to low. Simmer for 1 hour. Crumble the cooked bacon on top and enjoy!
