|Barbecue Green Beans
This is another grandmother recipe, but unlike Grandma Miller's cake, I was actually related to the grandmother who made this. Yes, I know barbecue green beans sound weird, but they taste really good. Don't take my word for it - make 'em yourself!
Gather up all this:
2 cans of green beans (or about 3 cups cooked fresh green beans)
About 4 slices of bacon
About half a medium onion
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup brown sugar
Cut up the bacon. Yes, before you cook it. Some people like to use sissors. These people need help.
Chop the onion. If it makes you cry, try looking at running water while you chop. It won't make your eyes stop watering, but it will give you something else to think about.
Brown the bacon and onion together in the frying pan. This will smell really good. Resist the urge to just eat the bacon and onions, or you'll be stuck with plain green beans for dinner.
Turn off the heat. Add the ketchup, brown sugar, and a couple of shakes of worcestershire sauce to the frying pan and mix well.
Put the beans in the baking dish. Dump the stuff in the frying pan over the beans. Don't stir it up - the runny bits will soak down into the beans and the solid bits will form a lovely crust on top.
Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes
