My kids love veggies, so when fresh isn't available I get creative with the cans! This is an out of the can recipe but it just tastes so darn good I had to share!

How to Make Canned Green Beans


  1. Cook bacon to crisp. Meanwhile combine green beans and potatoes in pan and cook until steamy. Add all herbs and bacon when done cooking.
  2. Combine and cover, simmering for about 10 minutes to let flavors set. Serve with slotted spoon and top with crumbs.
  3. When I make this for my family I only do the above steps, however I have made this as a potluck dish, only with fresh green beans, and the following added during the simmering process:
    1/2 cup finely sliced tomatoes
    1/2 cup diced white onion
    Its great both ways!
