My daughter always makes the classic Green Bean casserole with cream of mushroom for Thanksgiving. But my son and daughter- in law don't care for the mushroom. This is their favorite Green Bean dish that I make for them.

How to Make Green Bean & Bacon Skillet

Step-by-Step

  1. Trim and cut green beans to 1 1/2 inches. Set aside.(best to use fresh beans instead of canned)Chop bacon into small pieces. Fry bacon in large skillet, but not too crispy. Transfer bacon to paper towels to drain. Reserve the drippings.
  2. Add the vinegar with burner on medium. Deglaze the pan. Add the sugar.(Now I don't measure the ingredients. These are just a guess-timate, but pretty accurate. You can add more or less depending on your taste)Add salt.
  3. Add the beans to the skillet and stir. Reduce the heat to low and cover. Simmer for 40 min. or until beans are tender. Transfer to a serving dish.
