Halfway House Beans

Tonight with our dinners I made this side dish that is a recipe from my mother-in-law. It was absolutely delicious, so I thought I'd share it. Since I generally don't eat meat I left the bacon out of it (that is listed below) and it turned out just as well as it does with it.


Halfway House Beans

-3 (10 oz) packages french style frozen green beans (or use canned)

-4 slices bacon

-1 onion

-4 medium tomatoes (I used canned diced tomatoes instead)

-2-3 tablespoons sugar

-dash of salt and pepper

Cook green beans and drain. Fry bacon and drain. Chop onion and saute in fat. Add tomatoes, sugar, salt, and pepper. Cover and simmer until soft, about 20 minutes. Add beans and crumbled bacon and stir together. Serves 8.
