    Amie Perrett's Note:

    I always loved the way my mom cooked her green beans and all she did was add bacon so I then I started cooking them the way she did and started adding things to it. I am sure someone else has thought of this recipe but it really is the best green beans to me. I hope you enjoy and please post to let me know what you think.

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 (16 ounce) cans green beans (any style)
    • 1/2 medium white onion (chopped)
    • 5 -6 slices bacon (its up to you, I love a lot of bacon in mine)
    • 4 tablespoons butter
    • 1/2 cup mushroom (I get mine from a can, and you can use more or less)
    • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
    • salt and pepper
    • Tabasco sauce (I use about 5 shacks)


    1. 1
      Start by browning your bacon, when almost brown, throw in the mushrooms, onions and garlic powder and cook with the bacon. (It will give the mushrooms and onions a lot of flavor).
    2. 2
      In another pan put your cans of green beans in there with the butter, salt and pepper and let the butter melt.
    3. 3
      Then pour the bacon, mushroom, onions, and the bacon grease all in the green beans. (Note you might not want to pure all the bacon grease but enough for flavoring).
    4. 4
      Heat for about 10 minutes on medium heat and the flavor is great.

      We really enjoyed these beans. I halved the recipe and didn't add the mushrooms, salt or garlic powder. We all liked these.

      Excellent. I made this using 12 oz of frozen green beans cooked as directed on the package then cooled. I added the 6 slices of pre-cooked bacon from this morning and about a tablespoon of the bacon grease. I probably had at least a cup of fresh mushrooms that I sauteed with 2 tablespoons of butter and onions. Probably used a lot more hot sauce too. Made for wonderful green beans with endless possibilities. Thanks for sharing Amie. Made for March Photo Tag Special. :)
