Green Beans with Crispy Bacon
Just because everything tastes better with bacon!
1 pound of fresh green beans
2 or 3 slices of bacon
salt and pepper to taste
Chop the bacon into pieces and cook until crispy in a sauce pan. Remove the bacon from the pan, drain on paper towels and chop into very small pieces.
Remove the bacon fat from the pan but leave the pan for cooking the green beans.
Wash and take stems off the green beans. Pat dry with paper towel and place them in the same pan used to cook the bacon.
Saute the green beans on medium heat for about 1 minute then add 1/4 cup of water to the pan. Stir, cover and cook for about 10 minutes or until the green beans are tender.
Stir the beans often so they cook evenly. Add more water if needed. Add the crumbled bacon to pan.
Cook for a few minutes to warm the bacon. Add butter, salt and pepper to taste.
