The Best Green Beans

The Best Green Beans
Written by Rachel Gnagy

For our first Thanksgiving with Sam’s side of the family as a married couple, we were asked to bring a vegetable dish.  My dear husband doesn’t like too  many vegetables, so my choices were limited to what  I knew he enjoyed; corn, green beans, or potatoes. I searched online for a green bean recipe that would be different from the traditional green bean casserole. When I found this recipe, I decided to try it. Everyone loved it so much that we have been asked to bring these green beans to almost every family gathering since. It’s extremely simple and a great crockpot recipe, so you can easily make it at home and take it to a potluck or holiday meal.

1/2 pound of bacon, cut into pieces and cooked

Open the cans of green beans, drain them, and pour them into the slow cooker. Add the cooked bacon on top of the green beans.

Melt the butter and stir in the brown sugar, soy sauce, and garlic powder to make a thick sauce. Drizzle the sauce over the green beans.

Cook the green beans on high for about an hour. Stir the green beans just before serving to mix up all of the ingredients.

Enjoy! I will be making this again in just a couple of weeks for Thanksgiving dinner with my side of the family!
