The recipe called for a green bean called fatty horse, but I used whatever is in the store that looks fresh.

  • Bacon - 1/2lb into cut into 1" pieces
  • Onion - Yellow thinly sliced

  • Cook bacon over medium heat in a large pot, until crisp - This takes about 10 minutes
  • Add onion and cook until soft, stirring often

  • Add Beans and increase heat to bring to a boil.
