Green Beans, Bacon and Cherry Tomatoes Recipe

by Cindy Rippe

This is such a great recipe if you have access to fresh cherry tomatoes, green beans and onions. SO tasty!!!!!

I used my cast iron skillet for this recipe, I don't know why, but things just taste better when cooked in my old skillet!

Start out by snapping or trimming 1/2 lb fresh green beans into 1 1/2 inch pieces.

Fryabout 4 slices of bacon, cut in half in the skillet.

Remove browned, crisp bacon from skillet, drain on a paper towel lined plate. Drain off bacon grease and leave about 2 tablespoons in the pan. Add 1/2 chopped onion, cook until tender. Add beans, chicken broth, apple cider vinegar, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil.

Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and let simmer for about 40 minutes. Stir in cherry tomatoes and crumbled bacon, and increase heat to medium high. Cook until tomatoes are heated through. Don't you just love how colorful this dish is???
