Southern Style Green Beans & Potatoes
2 pounds fresh green beans
8 slices bacon
1 onion, diced
3-4 large red potatoes, peeled
4 cups chicken broth
3 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon salt

Wash and trim beans then cut into 2-inch pieces; set aside.
Cut bacon into 1/2-inch pieces then sauté over medium heat in a large skillet until browned. Add onion and beans then continue to sauté until onion is translucent. Remove from heat.
Cut potatoes into large cubes and add to a large pot or Dutch oven. Add chicken broth, butter, salt, pepper and bean mixture (with pan drippings) to the pot then bring to a boil.
