This is how I like to make green beans. First, I fry up a whole pack of bacon and I save the drippings. This is real important, kids - trust me. Cut (or tear if your a beast like me) the bacon up into little pieces, or big pieces... doesn't really matter, I suppose. I then take a can of green beans, I like the french cut, butonve agaim it doesn't matter. I completely drain all the green bean juice from the can so they are as dry as possible. Then, I pour them into a pot AND THEN I pour the bacon drippings and bacon in with them. I add some salt, some pepper, and then let it get all hot and steamy on the stovetop. SO GOOD!
