My boys are like most young kids, not the greatest eaters of veggies UNLESS of course it is smothered in dip or drenched in cheese! WHICH is not super-duper heathy. Here is a green bean recipe I have made so many times and they ALL eat it so so good! It is easy and quick to make, and healthy to boot! This recipe came from my “forever” friend, Carrie. Love to make recipes from friends and family, I always like to think of the people who I get recipes from….fun to imagine that food in their kitchen….I know……I know. Silly. I cannot be held responsible IF your child doesn’t want to eat plain green beans EVER again!
* I like to make it with fresh green beans WHEN I have them. Just cook ’em till tender, then dump into the skillet with the saute’d onions. Then add the rest and heat up.
* I don’t always use all the bacon. Usually I just use a small handful. Maybe a leftover piece or 2 from something else I had made. So use as little or as much as you would like too!
* I actually use more like 1/4 – 1/3 c. finely chopped onion, another thing you can sway on a bit!
