How to Make Canned Green Beans


  • 1Cook bacon to crisp. Meanwhile combine green beans and potatoes in pan and cook until steamy. Add all herbs and bacon when done cooking.
  • 2Combine and cover, simmering for about 10 minutes to let flavors set. Serve with slotted spoon and top with crumbs.
  • 3When 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!
