My beloved and very much missed Grandmother was always asked to bring these to family gatherings.. The woman knew how to cook, raising 8 kids, 6 of them being girls, I think it's fair to say- she had a PHD.. ;).. I only wish I had more of her recipes to share..

Directions

  1. Fry bacon til' it's crisp, on the stovetop. Add onion, cook until tender.
  2. Drain "all" liquid off of canned green beans.
  3. Add beans to bacon and onion mixture.
  4. Add bullion cube and water.
  5. Cook very slowly until beans "shrivel".
  6. Sometimes, ok well maybe always I have this compulsive need to add things to whatever I am cooking, and 98% of the time you can beat it's gonna be GARLIC or SPICES. Soo- there ya' go. Add in some garlic if you dare, or maybe some seasoning salt? :) But whatever you do- ENJOY!

Good green beans! I was really surprised how much the chicken bouillon added to the flavor. Thanks for sharing this simple keeper. Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup tag.

I think you made this for me and I really liked it. Saw the review for the garlic and cracked pepper... good thinking. Didn't think this dish could get any better!

This is so yummy. I make mine a lot like this but without the chicken bouillon. DH wanted to know what was different tonight... He thought I had used a different bacon. The chicken bouillon really sets this off. Thanks, Mama Jen for posting.
