Easy Southern Style Green Beans


Boy do I love some Southern cooking!!  Southern cooking brings comfort like fluffy slippers to cold feet.  Southern cooking is a cure all for whatever ails you and may be the best regional cooking ever!!!  These Easy Southern Style Green Beans are no exception to that rule. I could quite literally eat these with every meal perhaps even breakfast.  If you have never tried these you MUST give them a whirl.  


 As with most any good southern comfort food all you really need is a little time as they simmer for a couple of hours.  Now isn’t that how the south rolls like a fine oiled machine!! Now these Easy Southern Style Green Beans combine fresh green beans, smoked bacon, and onion into the most mouth watering side imaginable.  Prep is a breeze and your family will be singing your praises.  


Put this on your list!! You will be happy as a lark!  LOL!  Just how happy is a lark?  This would be a wonderful side for my Chicken Fried Steak or  Salisbury Steak with Mushroom Gravy. You could even make a pot of them and eat them as your main course!  How yummy would that be!!
