Just Like Homemade Green Beans

READY IN: 6mins
Recipe by Texaspollock

This is a quick and easy green bean recipe that take about 5 minutes to cook and uses canned green beans but taste like they've been cooked all day.

This is a really nice way to dress up canned green beans. I used 3 slices of real bacon, crumbled. The only thing I might do differently, is to take them out after 4 minutes because my green beans started to shrivel a bit. Thank you for a keeper of a recipe!
