Southern Green Beans & Bacon

Southern Green Beans & Bacon created by WhatamIgonnaeatnext

This is definitely an unhealthy old southern recipe that we continue to make for all large family gatherings. My oldest son (age 23) makes this when he goes to friends' homes. He said he's never had any left to bring home.

    This is wonderful. I've made it several times. We took it to a pot luck last night and it was eaten up. A commercial can of green beans is six pounds.

    Easy and tasty green beans! I cut the recipe down to 2 servings and really enjoyed this easy way to dress up canned beans - thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for the Best of 2010 Event (recommended by lazyme)
