Valerie's Story

I've been to several covered dish events where an inexperienced cook brought unseasoned green beans straight out of the can. So I thought there may be someone who would like some help with canned green beans.

A simple recipe for a quick meal.

Ingredients

2 can(s)
cut green beans (14.5 oz cans)
1 1/2 tsp
chicken bouillon granules (i use wyler's)
1 Tbsp
butter
1 tsp
seasoned salt (i use lawry's)
1/2 tsp
pepper
1 Tbsp
dry minced onions

Directions Step-By-Step

1
NOTE: this recipe is intended for green beans from a can.
2
Drain juice off green beans. Rinse beans well with cold water.
3
Place beans in sauce pan and add just enough cold tap water to barely cover beans.
4
Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil for 1 minute.
5
Reduce heat and simmer for 15 - 20 minutes. Stir once or twice while cooking.

My southern hubby couldn't believe I made these and ate them all which was a shocker because he's not a big green bean fan. I did add some side meat knowing if he didn't "see" it in them he wouldn't eat them. Thank you!!!

My quick & easy way to fix canned green beans is to add sugar (1 tsp per can), garlic powder (1/4 tsp per can) and a couple of dashes of Liquid Smoke. You get the flavor of bacon or ham but without the extra calories and fat. My family gobbles 'em up! :-)

Thanks for the comments everyone. When I cook green beans from scratch I use fresh onions, garlic and ham pieces.
