2 lb. Fresh Green Beans (We use the Large Can of Green Beans too)
4 Slices Crisp Bacon, Broken
3 tbsp. Butter
1/3 c. Minced Onion
1/2 c. Sliced Almonds
1 Clove Garlic - Minced
1 tsp. Salt
1/4 tsp. Pepper

In a large pan, cook beans, seasonings and ham-hock in a little water; bring to a boil, then reduce heat; cover and simmer until beans are fork tender; drain off most of liquid; chop meat in small pieces; saute' onions in butter until transparent; add to beans; add almonds; toss lightly and serve.

NOTE: I add the Bacon grease from Cooked Bacon. I also dont always add Almonds. Sometimes we like it without.
