Beans 'n' Caramelized Onions

Try this Beans 'n' Caramelized Onions recipe from Taste of Home Recipe Book. This side dish is simple and easy to prepare yet tasty. It is even served in restaurants like Buck Owen's Crystal Palace. I like my cooking of course. This is one of my favorite green bean dishes. Try it and you will love it!
4 bacon strips
2 large onions, cut into 1/2-inch wedges
2 pounds fresh green beans, trimmed
3 tablespoons cider vinegar
4-1/2 teaspoons brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Directions:
In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove to paper towels. Drain, reserving 2 tablespoons drippings. Crumble bacon and set aside. Cook onions in drippings over medium-low heat until tender and golden brown, about 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, place the beans in a large saucepan and cover with water; bring to a boil. Cook, uncovered, for 8-10 minutes or until crisp-tender; drain. Stir the vinegar and brown sugar into onions; add beans. Cook, uncovered, over medium heat for 1 minute. Add bacon; toss gently. Season with salt and pepper. Yield: 9 servings.
