"A different twist to the usual green bean casserole. Given to me years ago by my ex-mother-in-law, this is a tasty, fresh, sweet and tangy new way to serve green beans and it's sure to become a family favorite! Prepare the night before and marinate overnight for the best results. Enjoy!"

  1. In a large deep skillet, cook bacon over medium-high heat until evenly browned. Remove bacon to paper towels, and reserve drippings in the skillet.
  2. Place fresh green beans in a large saucepan, and add enough water to cover the bottom by 1 inch. Cover, and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Cook for 8 to 10 minutes, until bright green and tender. Drain.
  3. Place the green beans into a 2 quart casserole dish. Spread the onions in a layer over the green beans. Place bacon strips in a layer over the onions. Sprinkle almonds over the top. Heat the reserved drippings in the skillet over medium heat. Stir in vinegar and sugar, heating just until sugar is dissolved; drizzle over everything in the dish. Cover, and chill for at least one hour, but overnight is best.
  4. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Bake uncovered, for 45 minutes, until the onions are tender, and the almonds are toasted. Check after 30 minutes, and cover if necessary.

I've been making this for years and you can also do the simpler, quicker version (using same amts. - except for sugar). Using a large pan, cut the bacon in smaller, bite size pieces. Cook baco...

These are the mosty tasty green beans on the planet! I made a few modifications based on previous reviews. First, I cut the bacon into small-ish cubes. Then, I sauteed the onions in the bacon...

My husband really loved this! He thought the onions in it was cabbage...it was reminiscent of hot German sweet & sour cabbage. Very good!
