Southern Style Green Beans

Southern style green beans are our favorite side dish for any meal, especially during the holidays!

Here's what you'll need:

  • Fresh or frozen green beans
  • Thick sliced bacon
  • White onion
  • Tomatoes
  • Salt and pepper

The Process

Start by trimming the ends of the green beans. Then, in a pot of boiling water, blanch the green beans for 10 minutes. If you're using frozen green beans, microwave them per the instructions on the bag.

Next, dice 4 strips of thick sliced bacon, about 1 cup of white onions, and 1 cup of tomatoes. In a large skillet on medium-high heat, cook the bacon. You want to cook the bacon until it is lightly browned and almost crispy. At this point, add in the diced onions. Cook until the onions are tender, and then, add the green beans. Cook for 2-3 minutes and add in the diced tomatoes. Cook for 3-4 minutes or until the tomatoes have cooked down. Season with salt and pepper and enjoy!

  • Dice 4 strips of thick cut bacon, 1 cup of white onions, and 1 cup of tomatoes.
