After I removed the bacon from the cast iron skillet, I left some of the bacon fat in the skillet and sauteed the beans, onion and a little fresh minced garlic in the bacon fat with a pat butter, added some fresh ground pepper and let it cook until the onions started to turn translucent. I then poured over the chicken broth and simmered. We LOVED these green beans. My husband said that these reminded him of beans his Dad made for him growing up, he was quite upset there weren't any more. Next time, I'll double the recipe.

We love green beans with bacon and onion. I did this recipe a little different though. Fry up the bacon, remove and drain all the grease from the pan except what clings to the pan. Add the onions and saute them in the little bit of bacon fat - add the garlic and cook for just a minute or two then add the green beans and the chicken broth. Use the broth to deglaze the bacon goodness from the bottom of the pan. Cover and cook until tender. Plate the green beans and sprinkle with the reserved bacon. (The juice from the green beans is excellent added to gravy if you are making gravy.) This way you save the calories from the butter and only mess up one pan.



There are any number of ways this can be prepared, so do what works for you. In my case, I cooked the beans in boiling water for about five minutes while I sauteed the bacon, onions and garlic. Drained the beans, added them to the pan with the bacon/onion mixture and tossed until coated. Cooking these for 15-20 minutes would be far too long, at least for my liking.
