Original recipe yields 8 servings

Directions

  1. Place the chopped bacon in a skillet, and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until evenly browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain the bacon pieces on a paper towel-lined plate.
  2. Melt the butter in a skillet with a lid over medium-low heat, and cook and stir the onion until translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the cooked bacon, green beans, potatoes, garlic, and chicken broth. Bring to a boil, cover, and simmer over low heat until the green beans are tender, about 10 minutes. Sprinkle with vinegar, salt, and pepper, and serve.

One of my friends described this as 'German Potato Salad' meets Green Beans which is a great combo!! Here's my suggestions for next time: -- substitute red potatoes if you don't have new potatoes and dice them into 1/2 inch chunks -- after cooking the bacon, remove it and cook the onions in the bacon fat. Add another T or 2 of butter if necessary -- once the onion is cooked, add the potatoes and garlic. Cook for a couple minutes and then add the green beans and broth -- do not add too much broth as this will make your 'sauce' too soupy. -- make sure you have a large enough pot to be able to mix the vegetables as they cook. Otherwise the bottom cooks and the top is still raw. -- Once the dish is plated, sprinkle the bacon on top for an attractive presentation. -- Enjoy!!

Being southern, when I first made this recipe I included the bacon grease for extra flavor but next time I'll drain it off. No need to fry up bacon, you could just use bottled real bacon bits. Also since the small new potatoes aren't used whole, they are diced, you could just use 3 or 4 regular size potatoes. Loved the balsamic vinegar in this. Will be making this again!

These were great, lots of flavor. Didn't put in the potatoes because I was serving baked potatoes and used plain white vinegar instead of the balsamic. Also used home canned green beans (drained). Just tossed them a bit to blend with the other ingredients while heating and they were ready to serve.
