Amish Schnitzel Beans

I didn't plan to post about these green beans but as we were eating dinner we all kept commenting on how good they are... So I stopped eating (oh the things I do for this blog:@) and scooped what was left in the skillet into a pile and tried to get a pic. Not food staging at it's best, but I just had to share this great recipe!
My pickiest eater said these were the most flavorful green beans he's ever had-
High praise indeed:@)

Amish Schnitzel Beans-from
6 slices bacon
3 medium onions, sliced-I use one large one
1 lb fresh green beans-I used frozen that were thawed
2 cups fresh diced tomatoes-I just grabbed 2 large tomatoes
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/3 C boiling water-I did not use this
Splash of cider vinegar and pinch of sugar, about 2 tsp of each
  1. Dice bacon and fry until crispy.
  2. Add sliced onions and fry until lightly browned.
  3. Add tomatoes, S&P and water.
  4. Lower heat and cook until beans are tender.
Notes: I felt there was enough water in the thawed beans, so I didn't use the 1/3 C. If I used fresh beans I would add the water. Also, I removed the bacon and drained it on a paper towel once it was crispy, then added it back at the end. I've also made this using canned tomatoes and that was fine.

I'd like to thank Sarah at Hyacinths for the Soul for sending me the link to
this great recipe that I will be making again!

Eat well and have a happy day:@)

Foodie Friday


  1. They look fantastic. My husband loves green beans. We have, on very rare occasions, stopped eating to take a pix for the blog. Yours turned out way better than ours ever do. Perhaps my photographer husband is busy thinking about eating rather than the photo shoot :)

    Happy weekend Lynn.

  2. Yes, the things we do as a sacrifice ... I can remember seeing a family wait at DisneyWorld while the mom snapped pictures of all their dinners ... my kids looked at me in horror, worried that I would do the same. Luckily I was too hungry. Linda

  3. I know exactly what you mean about what we do for our blogs, haha!

    You can't beat bacon and onion seasoned green beans. Glad the pickiest eater enjoyed them!

  4. We love green beans and I'm always looking for new ways to prepare them. I have ruined more dinners by trying to get photos of the food. This may not be staged but I sure get the idea of how delicious the dish is.

  5. Yum! Sometimes you just don't need all those little "extras" to know its a good dish!

  6. I love bacon in my green beans. I use a little brown sugar and soy together and they turn out amazing.

  7. I think some bacon is a great way to spice up green beans. Thanks for the idea.

  8. I can make a meal off of green beans and I just happen to have 4 bags in the freezer.. yeaaaaaaaaa

    I sure know where to look for great recipes== right HERE.

    thanks so much for sharing with us..

    ps~ now I have to write the commentor above me::Holly:: and see if I can get her to share her recipe lol

    have a fab weekend.

  9. I love this Green Bean recipe, it looks like our kind of food. Thanks for sharing and have a great weekend!

  10. Lynne, got you tried these. Schnitzel Beans are a staple here, especially for holidays. '-)

  11. My mother used to make green beans this way, must have been all our trips to Lancaster County! lol I am glad you shared this, I had forgotten all about them. xo

  12. No offense to Earl, but heck yah, BACON!! Really these do look so good. I'm copying that recipe!

    hugs, Linda

  13. That IS high praise indeed from a picky eater! I appreciate you piling them in for a quick shot. We love green beans and I will be trying them!!

  14. This reminds me of how my Aunt Bette made green beans BUT instead of tomatoes she used catsup with the bacon and all - I can smell it in my mind. Great, now I have to open my ears to air my head out. Still... yum!

  15. Someone who takes pictures like me! My Dad used to stop and ask before he sat down for dinner if it was okay to eat or did I need to take a picture? Now we don't call him to the table until all the pictures are taken or I have a plate set aside.

    My family loves green beans, but I don't think we've had them this way. I'll have to try this sometime since you say they are so good. Thanks for the recipe!

  16. These look really yummy. But seriously, does Earl know you've posted another bacon recipe?

  17. Isn't it amazing how a few humble ingredients can make everyone sit up and take notice. I love these types of recipes where the ingredients blend together so nicely. Will be trying this one very soon.

  18. Can't beat beans and bacon. I could pick around the onions. Love the flavor - hate the texture. Thanks for catching the photo before they were all gone.

  19. Mmmmmm, we love green beans as well. This recipe would be a welcome one in my family. High praise is a big incentive. A good recipe just keeps going. HA!
    Hugs, Jeanne

  20. I would love these. I keep frozen green beans, from Costco, in my freezer at all times.


Thanks for stopping by!
