Great Green Beans
15 mins (prep 5, cooking 10)
5 ingredients
6 servings
Every year, Mom cans green beans from our garden. I love them, but I get tired of the plain old "heat 'em up with bacon grease" beans. So...this recipe came out of the desire to eat green beans a different way. It's easy enough for a weeknight, nice enough for company. Since not everyone has access to canned green beans, I made them with canned green beans to get the measurements exact for posting.
