Southern Style Green Beans

***You know its summer when the fresh green beans come on. Green beans are a very good source of protein, riboflavin, niacin, and dietary fiber. One cup (raw) is high in vitamin A (15%), C (30%), K (20%).  Green beans are also high in calcium (4%), iron (6%), magnesium (7%), and manganese (12%).

½ pound fresh green beans, stem end removed and snapped into bite size pieces

1 slice of raw bacon, cut into 1” pieces

2 small potatoes, washed, unpeeled, and cut into small wedges

1 small onion, peeled and cut into wedges

1 teaspoon of seasoned salt or regular salt

1/8 teaspoon of black pepper

Combine all ingredients in a sauce pan and add water just enough to barely cover. Bring to a boil. Cover the pan with a lid and turn the heat down. Simmer for 45 to 60 minutes or until potatoes are fork tender and beans are the texture you prefer. Check seasoning before serving. 

Makes 2 to 4 servings. Note: I usually make 3 to 4 times the amount in the above recipe. They are great reheated and will keep in the frig for at least a week.
