    Soleilbb's Note:

    A lot of folks simply open a couple of cans of green beans, heat, add a bit of butter...and wonder why no one eats them! This simple little "tweak" turns them into a delicious, satisfying side that'll change the way you think of canned green beans.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 4-6



    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 (14 1/2 ounce) cans cut green beans (not french-style)
    • 4 slices thick-cut bacon
    • 1/4 teaspoon minced garlic
    • salt


    1. 1
      Cook the bacon in a heavy sauce pan (do not crisp the bacon, just cook enough to extract the drippings). Remove from heat.
    2. 2
      Empty the 2 cans of cut green beans into the sauce pan directly on top of the cooked bacon and drippings.
    3. 3
      Add salt to taste and then the 1/4 teaspoons of minced garlic. Stir well and return to heat.
    4. 4
      Bring to a boil over medium heat, then reduce heat to med-low, cover, and simmer for at least 30 minutes (1 hour is better).
    5. 5
      Serve and enjoy.
    6. 6
      NOTE - Use good quality canned green beans. My family prefers "flat beans" (Cut Italian Green Beans), but regular cut will taste just as good.

      Yes, yes, yes! These are delicious! I add more garlic mainly because we are addicted to it, and some dehydrated chopped onion. I also drain the cans of green beans and then add back about a cup of chicken broth or bouillion - and then cancel the salt. This is a wonderful way to get everyone in the family interested in eating their green beans!! Thanks so much!

      I gave this five stars because my gosh, who would have thought these beans could be so simple and yet so good!<br/>I added a teaspoon of red wine vinegar to lift up the flavors. <br/>Thanks for posting!

      For the 2 of us I used 1 can of green beans, chopped a slice of bacon and a couple of garlic cloves. The flavor was awesome. A wonderful fix for canned beans. This is one that I will make again.
