German Green Beans

Cliff loves canned green beans, so anytime I want to win favor with him, I stir up some new way to serve his favorite vegetable. You can also prepare this dish with fresh or frozen beans if you prefer. I think you'll agree that the combination of almonds, and bacon bits is a true man-pleaser, especially when added to this dish's sweet-and-sour flavor. (The secret's in the combo of vinegar and Sugar Twin or Sprinkle Sweet!)

Serves 6 (2/3 cup)

1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup (1 ounce) slivered almonds
2 tablespoons Hormel Bacon Bits
4 cups (two 16-ounce cans) cut green beans, rinsed and drained
1/4 cup white vinegar
1/4 cup Sugar Twin or Sprinkle Sweet

In a large skillet sprayed with butter-flavored cooking spray, sauté onion until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in almonds and bacon bits. Add green beans. Mix well to combine. In a small bowl, combine vinegar and Sugar Twin. Stir vinegar mixture into green bean mixture. Lower heat. Simmer 5 minutes or until move of the liquid evaporates, stirring occasionally

Each serving equals:
