• 3 lbs fresh green beans - trimmed
• 6 slices of bacon
• 2 large sweet onions - chopped
• 2 T sugar
• 2 T balsamic vinegar
• 1 t black pepper


In a large saucepan, cook beans in boiling water until tender (about 10 to 12 minutes). Drain and set aside. (Beans can be precooked and refrigerated overnight if desired.) Also this year I am using fresh frozen green beans.
Next, in a large Skillet, cook bacon until crisp. Remove bacon, let cool, then crumble. Add onion and sugar to skillet and cook onions until they are soft, about 15 to 20 minutes. (You can also prepare this a day ahead and refrigerate if desired).
Add Beans and vinegar to onions and cook until heated through, which would be about 5 minutes.
Sprinkle the crumbled bacon on top before serving.
