If you want this to be a dump and go recipe, use cocktail onions and bacon bits. However, if you prefer, you can fry up regular bacon and crumble and slice up a yellow onion instead.
If you are using fresh beans from the garden you will want to wash and trim your beans beforehand. If you cannot get your hands on some fresh beans from the garden, you can oftentimes find them at the grocery store in the produce aisle.
I broke the ends off of my beans and then broke them again. You can leave them longer if you like. I just enjoy breaking the beans like I did when I was a kid. Totally up to you.
If you want to step this recipe up a notch, add in a tablespoon of bacon grease. We always save our bacon grease, so I have a coffee mug in my fridge with bacon grease. Is this a southern Indiana thing or do you do this too?
