The Absolute Best Country Style Green Beans

Shelley Simpson


Partaking in the festivities that horsemen and their families put on, I've tasted the best down-home cooking you could imagine. And I have always loved the Country Style Green Beans that many would serve up at cookouts. But, I had never asked for the recipes.
So after being away from the horses, I was craving the Country Style Green Beans and came up with a recipe that consisted of frying the bacon. It was fantastic.
However, after awhile, I wanted to make it healthier for my family, and so years ago, I revised it to this, even better, version. My family's most requested! Hope you enjoy it!

3 can(s)
green beans, drained (14.5 oz.) each
1 jar(s)
hormel real bacon pieces (2.8 oz)
1 medium
onion, thinly sliced
1/2 c
vinegar, (apple cider vinegar or regular white)
3/4 c


1Add the drained green beans of your choice to a 2qt casserole dish along with the Hormel Real Bacon Pieces and thinly sliced onions. Toss.
2In a small sauce pan, bring the vinegar and sugar to a light boil, while stirring, until the sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat and pour into green bean mixture.Toss.
3Cover or place a lid on the casserole dish and bake at 350 degrees for one hour.
4This smells amazing when it is baking.
And I have also used this recipe by replacing the green beans with thawed out Brussels sprouts which is equally amazing.
