Aren’t green vegetables the best? Most of my favorite vegetables are green vegetables- collard greens, broccoli, green beans, almost any kind of greens as long as they are cooked. There is nothing like fresh vegetables.

I have been trying to incorporate fresh vegetables into my diet more often, but it’s so easy to buy veggies frozen or in a can right? Well ya’ll know I’m all about Sunday dinner, so I try to at least cook my veggies fresh on Sunday.

Cooking green beans definitely brings back memories. I remember my mom and I used to sit in the living room and snap green beans together. Hers would be shorter than mines are, but it really doesn’t matter, snap them any way you like.

By the way, they are often called “snap beans” because they actually snap apart. When you snap these beans you will actually hear a snapping sound.

These beans have so many names- green beans, string beans, snap beans. Some may think that there is a difference, but in my opinion, they are one in the same. The green beans are lightly seasoned with bacon, onion powder, salt and pepper.

Don’t overdo it on the season to ensure to preserve the fresh taste of the beans. Once you eat fresh green beans, you will want to cook them anytime you get a chance!

So let’s talk about how to cook the beans.

Start with snapping the ends off of the green beans. If you want shorter green beans, snap them in half. Rinse the green beans thoroughly and drain the residual water.

While you are snapping the beans, cut your bacon into smaller pieces and fry your bacon until it is brown. Reserve the bacon drippings. Place the beans in a pot and add about two cups of water.

Add the bacon drippings to the water. Also add diced onion, onion powder, salt and black pepper. Cover the beans and cook them for about 45 minutes until they soften. Remove them for the heat, serve and enjoy!

    I love green beans!

  2. These beans are finger licking good! I haven’t made them in a while (I don’t know why either) but I actually prefer them fresh than to the canned ones. The only time I use the canned is for my green bean casserole, lol 😉

      Thanks so much! It’s easy to get away from it sometimes. I’ve never made a green bean casserole, but I hear they are delicious!
