  1. Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat until some of the fat renders into the pan, about 5 minutes. Stir onion and garlic into the bacon and continue cooking until the bacon is crisp and the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes more.
  2. Stir green beans, water, vinegar, salt, and pepper into the bacon; cook at a simmer until the liquid is mostly evaporated, 10 to 12 minutes. Top with bread crumbs and cheese; stir gently.

I ditched the casserole for this recipe for Thanksgiving, and now I will be using it year-round! I will probably use slightly less bacon next time to lighten it a tad (there was a pretty good am...
