  • Fry the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until browned and crisp. Drain off all but a thin coating of the grease. Add onions to the skillet; cook and stir until browned, about 5 minutes. Mix in tomatoes, stirring to remove any stuck on bits of bacon from the bottom of the skillet. Drain two cans of the beans, leave the liquid in the other two; pour into the skillet. Cook and stir until heated through.

People that change the ingredients and then say it was not as good as they thought it would be make me crazy. Make it like it is or keep pour comments to yourself. This was very good just as it was. Read More

Honestly these weren't anything special. I've made green beans with bacon and onion before that were AMAZING; even with the tomatoes these weren't anything to rave about. Rather mediocre. Read More

This dish is fabulous. I changed a couple things of course! I used fresh green beans and made this in my slow cooker. I added a lot more bacon and a little bit of sugar to cut the bitternes. Also added mushrooms and onions. The tomatoes make a nice stew with the green beans. Very comforting and very healthy. Read More

This recipe is the bomb. I did make some minor changes first I scale the recipe to serve 4. Instead half can tomato I use the whole can roughly 1/3 cup chop onion and 2 small clove garlic chop finely added the last minute of sauting onion. I also added sugar about one teaspoon to help loose the can taste. My dad a picky eater said taste as good as fresh green beans Read More

This is delicious on its own but I thought it was better the second time I made it because I added a clove of minced garlic to the onion. I also use frozen green beans not canned. If you have any leftover diced potatoes be sure to toss them in they are delicious! Read More

Very good recipe. I did change it slightly. I used fresh green beans and they were taking a long time to cook so I added chicken broth at the end of the recipe and cooked for quite awhile to soften the beans. It turned out fantastic and everyone was raving out them. Read More

Different yet very good. The addition of the bacon and stewed tomatoes add a nice stew-like taste to the green beans. It enhanced the taste and cut-down on some of the bitterness that green beans can have. We will make this again. Read More

I'm not a big fan of bacon so I left it out. I followed the rest of the recipe as written and really enjoyed it. Will make it again for sure. Read More
