    carinrutherfordcreel's Note:

    Being a mother of six kids, having to cook for 8, and always in a rush, this idea came to me years ago when I didn't have an extra stove burner or oven available to cook my green beans. Thinking of how simple it is to bake a potato in the microwave, I decided to give this a shot and it turned out wonderfully. It's a very simple and delicious recipe using fresh (not frozen or canned) green beans with the tips removed (a little prep time), but I found that my kids were usually more than willing to get involved and help which gave us some quality time together, and taught them a little basic microwave cooking. It's just so simple that an older child can do it all. Note* If an adult were to remove, or prepare the items needing to be cut with a sharp knife (potatoes and onions) in advance, this recipe can easily be made by a small child under little supervision.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1/4 cup water
    • 2 potatoes (red potatoes, washed and cut into medium sized chunks -* potatoes optional)
    • 1 lb fresh green beans (washed and tips removed)
    • 1 onion (Vidalia, peeled and sliced, onion optional)
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
    • 1/4 teaspoon pepper (or to taste)
    • 3 tablespoons butter (cut into 6 thin slices, butter optional)
    • 1 lb bacon (strips)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a large glass microwave-safe bowl, add water and layer potato chunks (bottom), green beans (center) and onion slices (top).
    2. 2
      Add salt and pepper to taste.
    3. 3
      Add thin slices of butter by scattering over the top onion layer.
    4. 4
      Interlace bacon strips across the top of the butter layer; laying one vertical and the next horizontal (making rows as if you were weaving a basket).
    5. 5
      Cover with plastic wrap so that it is sealed tightly.
    6. 6
      Place in microwave and cook on High for about 10 minutes.
    7. 7
      Let sit in microwave for a few minutes to cool (I usually just allow mine to set while waiting for the rest of the dinner to cook).
    8. 8
      Remove from microwave. It should still be warm but if not you can microwave another minute or two to warm it up.
    9. 9
      Remove plastic wrap when ready to serve.
