Green Beans Almondine

When I used to cater with a couple of my friends, this was a favorite Green bean recipe we made. We also made this for my daughter's wedding. Just something different from the french onion recipe. Green Beans Almondine
(2) 16 oz. cans green beans
8 slices bacon, cooked, drained and crumbled
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
small package sliced almonds
1/2 cup sugar
1 bunches green onions, sliced
In a skillet, cook the bacon until crisp. Remove the bacon, add the sugar, almonds and vinegar. Bring to a boil and then remove from the heat.
In a 2 qt. casserole dish, add the green beans. Mix in the green onions. Pour vinegar/almond mixture over beans and stir until mixed. Crumble the bacon on top. Cook in a 350 degree oven for 25 minutes until thoroughly heated.
Yield: 10 servings
