Southern-Style Green Beans
Difficulty – Easy
Feeds – 6-8
4 slices thick-Cut bacon (I tend to like the peppered bacon here)
2 – 28 oz cans Italian-cut green beans
4 tbsps butter, cut into large chunks
1 tsp ham base
1 tsp kosher salt
½ tsp black pepper
Prepare the Bacon
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Place bacon on a foil-lined baking tray. Bake for 15-18 minutes, until golden brown. Remove the cooked bacon from the pan and drain on paper towels, then chop into bite-sized pieces.
Rinse and drain your green beans. Add the bacon, butter, ham base, salt, and pepper along with 1 cup of water. Cover and place on the stove on medium low heat or in a medium slow cooker on low. Allow to simmer at least a half an hour.
