As a first time gardener, we planted half a box of green beans. We almost didn't plant any green beans, but one of our little guys LOVES green beans, so we decided to plant some for him! He seriously eats green beans like candy! Fresh, frozen or canned, as long as they are cooked, he'll eat 'em up!
Now that I've discovered this recipe for green beans, I wish we would have planted more! The flavor maker is the bacon, making these green beans the best I've ever had!
These taste great, but they are also really easy. Fresh green beans take awhile to cook, so using the slow cooker is the ideal way for me to make these. I love that I can throw everything in the crock pot, walk away, and a few hours later my house smells amazing!
This is truly the only way I will make green beans ever again, and next year, we are definitely planting more than half of a garden box of green beans.
