My kids don't like green beans, so I am always on the look out for a good recipe that I can afford (for canned green beans). I developed this one, and they will actually eat it. What doesn't bacon fix? I love green beans, so I enjoy it without the bacon too. Enjoy!

2 can(s)
green beans (your choice of kind, i like french cut, but all are good)
1 small
yellow or white onion, peeled, minced
1 clove
garlic, pressed or minced (very finely)
1/2 lb
bacon, cooked until crispy ( but not overcooked)
1 tsp
bacon drippings
1 Tbsp
butter (or olive oil)
2 Tbsp
slivered almonds (optional)
1 c
french fried onions (optional)

How to Make Green Beans


  • 1Cook bacon, reserve 1 teaspoon of drippings,include some of the brown stuff. Saute the onions and garlic in the bacon drippings, and the butter (or olive oil).
  • 2Heat green beans in a separate pan and drain. Pour into pan with sauteed onions and garlic. Add crumbled bacon. Keep on low heat until ready to serve. Slivered almonds are also a great addition to this dish, or if you want to halve the onions and add french fried onions on top, that is also good.
