This is an easy one! My husband loves green beans and bacon, so I make this for him at least 2 or 3 times a month!!! Fresh green beans are great but frozen ones work just as well and are quick. I've taken this to potluck suppers and always bring home an empty dish!!!

How to Make Green Bean Supper


  1. Slice bacon into 1" pieces. Chop Onion. Put bacon in soup pot and slowly begin cooking it, when it starts to render fat, add onions. Stir and cook, not letting bacon to crisp or onions to carmelize.
  2. While onions and bacon are cooking, scrub potatoes. Remove any eyes you don't like, and cut into chunks. Don't peel the potatoes.
  3. Add about 2 cups water to bacon and not drain fat! Scrape bottom and sides of pot, so as to incorporate browned portions of bacon. Add potatoes and another 2 or three cups water, add beans. Cover and cook about 1 hr, 20 minutes or until liquid reduces enough to just cover beans and potatoes.
  4. Serve in pasta or soup bowls with crusty bread to sop up juice.
