  1. Place the chopped bacon in a large saucepan, and cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until evenly browned and crisp, 6 to 8 minutes. Remove the bacon and set aside. Drain the grease from the pan.
  2. Stir the vinegar, white sugar, and brown sugar into the pan. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat. Drain 2 cans of green beans and add them to the vinegar mixture. Pour 2 undrained cans of beans into the mixture, and stir the bacon back into the beans. Stir lightly to combine. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer until the sauce is thickened and the flavors have blended, about 20 minutes.

Way too sweet. Overall not a bad flavor, but I ended up having to add both salt and soy sauce to cut the sugar. I doubt I'll make these again.

This is similar to a recipe I have. Double the bacon & cook with 1/2 chopped onion. Sauce is 1/2 c vinegar, 1 c Brown sugar, & 1 c ketchup. Drain all 4 cans of green beans. Also I make this as a...
