This recipe is a family favorite. It’s a great side dish for so many entrees but we love to serve it with prime rib, ham and roast chicken. It was on our Christmas menu this year as a side to our prime rib. While the recipe requires multi-tasking and a watchful eye, the effort is worth the result! I prep the onions prior to starting anything and then prep the green beans while cooking the bacon. Don’t rush caramelizing the onions. My favorite onion to use is Vidalia. If Vidalia onions are not available in your area, substitute another sweet onion variety such as Walla Walla. Don’t substitute anything for the cider vinegar. It makes a difference. Read through the recipe before beginning so you understand all that is involved. This recipe is perfect for company too! It makes 12 servings but can easily be down-sized for a smaller group.
