Potato & Green Bean Medley:

This was a fabulous side dish that my whole family enjoyed! It was pretty easy and tasted really good! It's nice for this time of year, too, if you have fresh green beans from your garden (which we did) and even potatoes (which we didn't)!! I hope you try it out!

4 strips of bacon, diced
3 cups potatoes, cubed (peeled or unpeeled)
1 & 1/2 cups fresh green beans, snapped into 1-inch pieces
1/2 small onion, finely chopped
3/4 cup water
1/8 tsp. black pepper

In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove to paper towels; drain, reserving 1 tablespoon drippings. Return the drippings to the skillet and add potatoes, green beans, onion, water and pepper. Bring to a boil; cover and cook for 15-20 minutes or until vegetables are fork tender, stirring occasionally. You'll want to watch and add more water as needed to make sure they don't burn or stick to the skillet. Let the water evaporate out once everything is cooked. Remove from the heat and sprinkle with the bacon. Serve!!
