Cook some green beans in water with a pinch of salt.  Drain completely.

In a frying pan,  cut bacon into 1/4" square pieces . Fry until your preference.   Then pour in an appropriate amount of white vinegar.  Cook for 30 seconds.   Pour bacon / vinegar mix over green beans.

Enjoy.

I buy this at a local grocery store.  It is vinegar based with green beans, wax beans, and kidney beans.

I can just imagine heating that up with some bacon!

It appears bacon is the common denominator! 

You know those mini cabbages? Brussel sprouts? They fucking suck any other way than baked and wrapped 360 in all directions, double wrap with tooth picks holding the bacon sphere together is all the better! 

Otherwise they go in the fucking TRASH! 

This sample photo is absolutely crying to be wrapped like gyro or a mushroom over cheddar with more cheddar melted on top!

Brussel sprouts are ok if steamed. It's when they are over boiled and soggy that they are not nice.

If you ask me, without bacon, brussel sprouts are only good with a nine iron!

I had brussel sprouts for the first time a couple years ago.  Once blanched (steamed until slightly soft) fry them in a skillet with a little olive oil, butter, salt, bacon, onions, and garlic.

I have also put them on the grill in a cast iron pan with the same ingredients.  Absolutely wonderful if you like cabbage.

I have also canned them like garlic dill pickles.  Amazing with a bloody mary.  I blanch them (partially boiled) then "cold packed" them like making refrigerator pickles.  Still a bit crisp, but not raw.

Jan, I'm using your bean recipe for dinner tonight. 

I marinated chicken breasts with turmeric, ginger, salt, garlic powder, cumin, and lemon juice.  I will bread them and bake in the oven.  Served with mushroom rice and a side of Jan's beans, it will be a gastronimical experience!

I steam the Brussel Sprouts for 15min then add sliced yellow onions, steam another 10 minutes and add green peppers and squash. Seasoning and/or smoked meat with Brussel Sprouts also helps a lot. When the squash is tender, decant and cover with shredded cheese. Easy to cook while I surf the internet, and reheats well.

It will also work over spinach,  endive, thin sliced potatoes.

I am going to try a variation of this. Sounds like a healthy and easy thing to make.

reduce this down over medium heat for a great side dish.

Potatoes are easy to grow yourself as well.
