I bought a bunch of frozen vegetable bags for free with a coupon. Problem was that we don't really care for frozen vegetables. So, I had to get creative with ways to jazz it up. I like green beans and bacon, so I looked at a few recipes, then made up my own. It was excellent; we went back for seconds!


  1. Cook frozen green beans according to package directions, using the lowest time given.
  2. In a large skillet, fry bacon until desired doneness. Drain on paper towel and return to skillet.
  3. Add cooked green beans, chicken broth, and onion powder to the skillet. Stir to combine.
  4. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and cook for ten minutes or until most of the liquid is evaporated, stirring occasionally.

I liked these but no one else did in my family. We are not fans of frozen green beans but I had a bag in the freezer so made this as written. I only used one teaspoon of onion powder though.
