DIRECTIONS

  • Cook the bacon in a heavy sauce pan (do not crisp the bacon, just cook enough to extract the drippings). Remove from heat.
  • Empty the 2 cans of cut green beans into the sauce pan directly on top of the cooked bacon and drippings.
  • Add salt to taste and then the 1/4 teaspoons of minced garlic. Stir well and return to heat.
  • 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).
  • Serve and enjoy.
  • NOTE - Use good quality canned green beans. My family prefers "flat beans" (Cut Italian Green Beans), but regular cut will taste just as good.
