Green Beans with Bacon and Shallots

Total time: 30 minutes
Using bacon and onion or shallots to flavor green beans goes back to my childhood.  My mother would 'cook up a mess of beans', with lots of bacon and onion to flavor them, then finish the whole lot off with heavy cream.  It was wonderful.... I try for the flavor without quite so much artery clogging fat!
