Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I've been making these forever this seems like a lot of work and time especially with canned green beans. Add the green beans to a sauce pan with about half the liquid, add bacon, salt and pepper, bring to a boil to cook the bacon and simmer for about 10 minutes. Or just add a tablespoon of reserved bacon drippings along with salt and pepper. I never put onion with my green beans and they are better than Cracker Barrels,

This sounds good but I am confused by the different comments about the beans. Should I drain them or not? Maybe I will drain one can but not the other two. I've never had this at Cracker Barrel, but my family does like green beans, so this should be good.

Just a note to Member. My recipe has the exact same ingredients, except I cook my canned green beans in a skillet. Chop up the raw bacon and raw onion and fry it in a skillet until the bacon is almost crisp. Drain off most of bacon grease add a can of DRAINED green beans with the listed seasonings. Toss and cook until the green beans are heated throughly. You can adjust the amount of bacon grease and seasonings to your taste. Hope this helps.

What I was actually looking for, was their recipe for Baby Lima Beans w/ Bacon and Onions. Would you possibly have it ? Thanks

i tried this and a family of four agreed it was tasteless. better off having the green beans from the can alone. I am not sure why it was tasteless as maybe it was to much liquid from the greenbeans, but i am sure this could be good if tweaked.

Drain the green beans and replace the juice with a can of chicken broth.

...obviously u do something with (or to) the onions before adding them?? I have not made the recipe yet.

I love these green beans. I always get the green beans when I go to Cracker Barrel which is at least 4 times a month.
