A nice little twist for you to add to your fresh cooked green beans is to add a bit of bacon.
2 slices of bacon, diced and fried up (not too crispy)
1 1/2 cups of fresh, cut green beans
Fry up bacon in small fry pan. Start cooking green beans in 1 quart sauce pan. Once beans are about 1/2 cooked. Add drained bacon bits. Cook until beans are tender.
