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!

Yummy. I halved the recipe and used real bacon instead of bits. Simple and good. Thanks Texaspollock for sharing. Made for Cookbook Tag.

We really enjoyed these. I used onion powder instead of minced onions as I didn't have any. I just shook on the powder, I didn't measure it. We all really liked these. I did let them simmer on the stove instead of putting them in the microwave. These will be made again as we love green beans. I loved that they were quick and easy to make and they were full of flavor.
